Reading List: The World Is Getting Better

To start off the new year with an optimistic outlook, here is a list of books that claim the world is getting better:

1. Myths of Rich and Poor, by Cox and Alm

2. The Progress Paradox, by Easterbrook

3. It’s Getting Better all the Time, By Moore and Simon

4. The Improving State of the World, by Goklany

5. The Escape from Hunger and Premature Death, by Fogel

6. The Skeptical Environmentalist by Lomborg

7. The State of Humanity, by Simon

Also, here is some advice for how to read beyond your level.

(HT Tyler Cowen for both of these.)
