Alexa Clay – The Misfit Economy
Recorded in Los Angeles, July 2015
The Misfit Economy is a book that argues that lessons in creativity, innovation, salesmanship, and entrepreneurship can come from surprising places: pirates, bootleggers, counterfeiters, hustlers, and others living and working on the margins of business and society.
The book investigates the stories of underground innovation that make up the Misfit Economy. It examines the teeming genius of the underground. It asks: Who are these unknown visionaries? How do they work? How do they organize themselves? How do they catalyze innovation? And ultimately, how can you take these lessons into your own world?

Panti is Ireland’s foremost “gender discombobulist” and “accidental activist”. She was also presented with an Irish ‘People of the Year’ award in 2014. Panti’s creator Rory O’Neill sparked a national furore when he appeared on national television and named certain individuals and organisations as homophobic. When Panti took to the stage of the National Theatre to defend herself, her ten minute oration became an international sensation.
