Ill Literacy, Episode XIII: Ten Global Trends Every Smart Person Should Know (Guest: Marian L. Tupy)

October 5, 2020

In Episode XIII of Ill Literacy, Tim Benson talks with Marian L. Tupy about the book he co-authored with Ronald Bailey, “Ten Global Trends Every Smart Person Should Know: And Many Others You Will Find Interesting.”

Heartland’s Tim Benson is joined by the Cato Institute’s Marian L. Tupy to discuss the new book he co-authored with Ronald Bailey, Ten Global Trends Every Smart Person Should Know: And Many Others You Will Find Interesting. They talk about how the view the world is getting progressively worse, shared by a large majority of Americans, is grossly mistaken. Tupy sheds light on how global metrics on poverty, life expectancy, nutrition, violence, human health and attainment, and material abundance, among many others, are all improving.
