Civilization: Is the West History? (Part 1)

Today's Saturday Learning Series entry is a must watch for political and economic history enthusiasts..

The West has dominated civilization for the last half millennium. Niall Ferguson boils down to six different ideas (or killer apps as he calls them) that were relatively unique to the West and explains over this 6 part series how it happened and what might be needed to sustain that leadership position for Western democracies. Part 1 looks at what got the ball rolling for the West - competition.
