Event Date: 

In the recently published Ten Global Trends Every Smart Person Should Know: And Many Others You Will Find Interesting, coauthors Ron Bailey and Marian Tupy present a striking, data-rich case on the improving state of the world. The collection is the perfect antidote to the apocalyptic 2020 news cycle and our generally pessimistic tendencies.

In brief, in the two centuries since the giant leap in human well-being and wealth following the industrial revolution—memorably dubbed “the Great Enrichment” by renowned economist Deirdre McCloskey—we have experienced declining poverty, violence, and death; increasing life expectancy, happiness, and IQ; and greater freedom and environmental conservation worldwide. Join CEI for an online discussion about these global trends of progress and how reasoned optimism should inform our future goals with the authors and CEI President Kent Lassman.
