Matt Ridley discusses rational optimism.

Our economy is hurting, and many see environmental degradation as a looming threat. Unfortunately, the proposed solutions for getting humanity back on track are, in fact, rejections of the very factors that guided us from the poverty of our ancestors to the prosperity of today. That’s the claim of Matt Ridley, author of The Rational Optimist. He spoke at the Cato Institute May 20, 2010.
