The Science, Politics, and Economics of Global Betterment

Publisher Description

This book is about how to reduce poverty and improve global living standards. Topics include economic growth, income inequality, corruption, sustainable development, and more.

Here are some questions answered throughout:

Which nations have the best living standards? Has capitalism failed? What caused the decline of the middle class in some nations like the US and UK, but not in others like Switzerland and the Nordic countries? Why is economic growth slowing in developed countries? Why is our tax system so complicated and full of loopholes? What can we do about it? Should we raise taxes on the rich? How high should the minimum wage be? Can we grow the economy without harming the environment? How do we speed up the transition to renewable energy? How do we grow food sustainably? What do we do about dwindling resources? How high can the debt go? What is the cause of corruption? Is the world getting better or worse? Will robots take our jobs? Can we cure aging? Should we?
