The Rational Optimist and education

All the pessimism I hear about our world just made me want to read The Rational Optimist. I had heard of the book but could not quite remember the name. I searched for “optimist” on Amazon and quickly found the book, by Matt Ridley, British sicence writer. I bought it and started reading right away, all my on my  iPad. I am glad I did.

Matt Ridley describes how the free exchange of ideas has brought about more and more innovation and progress, and better world today than ever in the past. And the best is yet to come. Check out his website.The only things that are more expensive today than 50 years ago, are education and health. Health I can understand, but in education, we are getting poorer outcomes today than a generation ago. It is time to change this.
