Chapter 4: It’s Not As Bad As You Think

Meet Matt Ridley, scientist, author, optimist, and learn the hard facts which explain how the world is getting better at a increasingly rapid rate. Next we examine saved time as a metric of progress, explore the impact that specialization and exchange has had on prosperity, and see why information technology makes trade a non-zero exchange. Lastly, we meet Hans Rosling, professor of international health at Sweden’s Karolinska Institute, and find out that the perceived gap between the world’s rich and the world’s poor is much, much smaller than most suppose.
