“The Improving State of the World“. Indur Goklany’s back to tell us that his new think-tank book explains how we can grow our way out of any problem. Free trade solves everything! And the more energy we use the better. Just look at the numbers for the “objective measurement of human well-being”! And that’s the end of the tunnel up there, not an on-coming train.
Goklany’s thesis is true if you think getting ready for the weekend is long-range planning, but its classic think-tank myopia. It also feeds into Anthony Watts’ theme that the crypto-communist greenies are trying to force us to live in caves eating raw potatoes.
