Overview

The daily news cycle focuses on the world's tragedies, whether they be weather catastrophes or outbreaks of violence. With the constant bombardment of bad news, it's easy to forget how far humans have come in some of the most important areas of life.

Johan Norberg is an author, lecturer, documentary maker, and historian of ideas who is dedicated to promoting economic globalization. In Progress: Ten Reasons to Look Forward to the Future, Norberg highlights how negative events, such as war and terrorism, are less common than in the past. Enormous progress has been made in eradicating global malnutrition, illiteracy, and improper sanitation conditions, amidst other critical advancements. Throughout the book, Norberg utilizes empirical evidence, along with his personal belief in free trade and globalization, to showcase how gradual progress over time can lead to astounding results.

Favorite Quote

"Even though wealth and human lives can be destroyed, knowledge rarely disappears. It keeps growing. Therefore any kind of backlash is unlikely to ruin human progress entirely. But progress is not automatic... If progress is to continue, you and I will have to carry the torch."
