9780007267125: The Rational Optimist
Review:

‘A triumphant blast on the vuvuzela of common sense’ Boris Johnson

‘A glorious defence of our species… a devastating rebuke to humanity's self-haters’ Sunday Times

‘No other book has argued with such brilliance against the automatic pessimism that prevails’ Ian McEwan

‘His theory is, in a way, the glorious offspring that would result if Charles Darwin’s ideas were mated with those of Adam Smith’ The Economist

‘Original, clever and controversial’ Guardian

‘As a work of bold historical positivity it is to be welcomed. At every point cheerfulness keeps breaking through’ The Times

From the Publisher:

Shortlisted for the BBC Samuel Johnson Prize for Non-fiction 2011.

Life is on the up.

We are wealthier, healthier, happier, kinder, cleaner, more peaceful, more equal and longer-lived than any previous generation. Thanks to the unique human habits of exchange and specialisation, our species has found innovative solutions to every obstacle it has faced so far.

In ‘The Rational Optimist’, acclaimed science writer Matt Ridley comprehensively refutes the doom-mongers of our time, and reaches back into the past to give a rational explanation for why we can – and will – overcome the challenges of the future, such as climate change and the population boom.

Bold and controversial, it is a brilliantly confident assertion that the 21st century will be the best for humankind yet.

Descripción Estado de conservación: New. Publisher/Verlag: HarperCollins UK | How Prosperity Evolves | Life is getting better, and at an accelerating rate. Food availability, income and lifespan are up; disease, child mortality and violence are down - all across the globe.Though the world is far from perfect, necessities and luxuries alike are getting cheaper; Africa is following Asia out of poverty; the internet, the mobile phone and container shipping are enriching people's lives as never before. The pessimists who dominate public discourse insist that we will soon reach a turning point and things will start to get worse. But they have been saying this for 200 years.Matt Ridley does more than describe how things are getting better. He explains why.Prosperity comes from everybody working for everybody else. The habit of exchange and specialisation - which started more than 100,000 years ago - has created a collective brain that set human living standards on a rising trend.This bold book covers the entire sweep of human history, from the Stone Age to the internet, from the stagnation of the Ming empire to the likely consequences of climate change. Thanks to the ceaseless capacity of the human race for innovative change, and despite inevitable disasters, the twenty-first century will see both human prosperity and natural biodiversity enhanced.Acute, refreshing and revelatory, The Rational Optimist will tip your way of thinking about the world for the better. | Format: Paperback | Language/Sprache: english | 320 gr | 453 pp. Nº de ref. de la librería K9780007267125
