The global economy is nearly eight times larger than in 1950, and the world’s population has increased from 2.5 billion to 6.5 billion people. The conventional wisdom remains that development has failed. Getting Better reports the good news. Economist Charles Kenny argues against the naysayers, demonstrating that the story of the modern world is one of widespread and historically unprecedented progress. Even people today who remain as poor as their parents or grandparents have seen massive quality of life improvements. The evidence for any country being caught in a Malthusian nightmare,where the population exceeds the country’s “carrying capacity,” is threadbare. No country is stuck in a technological dark age without hope of exit – indeed; technologies of increased production have spread worldwide. Getting Better offers a fresh, hopeful new look at our global economy. That’s not to say that life is grand for everyone, or that we don’t have a long way to go. But improvements have spread far, and can spread even further.
