Summary: Part of a series that explores the origins and effects of those inventions that shape the modern world by traveling through history to bring to life the associative nature of change. This episode begins as Robin Hood starts us on a trail from medieval showbiz to tapestries to land drainage by a Dutchman who invents decimals that end up in U.S. currency thanks to the guy who started the Erie Canal, that the railroad ruined with the kind of management that also started department stores and advertising which led to robots. The trail ends in a Tornado Fighterbomber
