Abstract

The current information age is modelled on the advancement of innovative mindset of creative thinkers, championed through means associated with transformative technologies embodied on events like, high speed internet and payment system, thereby making it possible for transactions to be dealt with almost instantaneously. Such developments are essentially vital, given its prospect for championing growth rate and dynamism in the world economy and also, the need to ensure living conditions are adequately satisfied, particularly in the direction of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) earmarked for full implementation in the year 2030. The concept of innovation is widely used in all walks of life - the effort of Schumpeter’s paradoxical term, “creative destruction” became highly prominent in the 1950s, which many economists in recent time have endeavoured to linked with free market economics (Cozzi and Galli, 2019; Benigno and Fornaro, 2018). Creative destruction as proposed by Schumpeter, and also explained by Alm and Cox (Online) is essentially facts about capitalism, which is thought to be a shorthand description of free market’s messy way of delivering progress.
