Emergent Ventures, which looks for big and unique ideas, has raised $60 million and funded more than 200 projects. Mason economist and co-founder Tyler Cowen says the grants are “something you can win that’s not about connections.” Push ideas, he said. “Make the world tell you no.” Cowen also talks about how the Fast Grants program is helping fight Covid-19, why having children can help fight climate change and why he is optimistic about the U.S. economy.
