We all know at least some of the disruption stories so celebrated by believers in the new economy. You do not have to be old enough to remember when Eastern, Pan Am and TWA ruled the skies and "Ma Bell" was the telephone company, to know that the news and music industries have been totally disrupted by online media, manufacturing is threatened by 3D printing, and the taxi industry is currently being disrupted by Uber and Lyft. From pharmaceuticals to healthcare; from retail to manufacturing; no industry is safe from an ongoing wave of disruption.
