Staff Reviews


Contrary to the opinions of alarmists and professional worriers, the data on poverty, disease, and education compared to 100 years ago is staggeringly good and keeps getting better and better. For a fact-drenched pick-me-up, read this book.

— From What Bartas is Reading

Description


A Book of the Year for The Economist and the Observer
Our world seems to be collapsing. The daily news cycle reports the deterioration: divisive politics across the Western world, racism, poverty, war, inequality, hunger. While politicians, journalists and activists from all sides talk about the damage done, Johan Norberg offers an illuminating and heartening analysis of just how far we have come in tackling the greatest problems facing humanity. In the face of fear-mongering, darkness and division, the facts are unequivocal: the golden age is now.
