Garry Kasparov on innovation

I’ve admired retired world chess champion Garry Kasparov for his mastery of the game of chess. Mr. Kasparov broke multiple chess records and met (and lost) a challenge from IBM’s Deep Blue. He’s also an anti-Putin activist, eloquent writer, and thoughtful political analyst.

I thought that Kasparov confined his commentary to the former Soviet Union, but he just published a thoughtful DailyBeast article titled Hey Bernie don’t lecture me about socialism. I lived through it. He’s seen both capitalism and socialism from their insides and I respect his opinion of both. He argues that only capitalism encourages innovation, which enriches everyone.
