Study Up For 'Think': How Does Tinkering Shape Our Nation?

Jan 16, 2013

Millenials' new interest in using their hands to craft and farm hearken back to an age of trial and error. So says author Alec Foege, who talks with Krys Boyd at 1 p.m. today on Think.

Foege, author of The Tinkerers: The Amateurs, DIYers, and Inventors Who Make America Great, believes that despite our culture's obsession with quickness and predictability, we remain fascinated by tinkering.

This feature for CNN Money explores Foege's ideas alongside those of other business writers.

Listen to Think from noon to 2 p.m., Monday through Thursday, on KERA 90.1 or stream live at
