This year's theme at TEDxDenisonU will be “Creative Destruction.” Creative Destruction, a phrase coined by the economist Joseph Schumpeter, refers in economic terms to the “process of industrial mutation that incessantly revolutionizes the economic structure from within, incessantly destroying the old one, incessantly creating a new one.” We're taking that theme and broadening it, not only to the field of economics, but also to creative destruction in how we think about ecology, government, and education. We will be exploring paradigm shifts in these fields, especially where they intersect, and to that end we are looking for speakers to present revolutionary ideas that challenge old ways of doing things while providing a new way forward to better meet human needs.
