At last, a refreshing positive look at the human condition and the future. Thoroughly researched and referenced, this book shoots down the continued growth of the pessimism culture and actually looks at the world with a glass half full. At last capitalism isn't seen as the growth of an evil empire but as the method for raising people out of poverty and responsible for raising the standard of living across the world. For the alternatives, look at North Korea... A tour de force, and a book that should be read by everyone, especially those prone to saying "things aren't like they used to be..."
