Crises can be a fertile time for scientific and technological innovation.

Derek Thompson, a staff writer at The Atlantic, discusses how the U.S. response to the COVID-19 pandemic could spur a new era of innovation — the way the focused government-led efforts during World War II did — but so far, it has fallen short.

Host Peter O'Dowd speaks with Thompson.

This segment aired on June 30, 2021.
