What causes living standards to rise?
Why are some countries so much richer than others?
How might all humans thrive and survive?
In The Journey of Humanity, Oded Galor offers a revelatory explanation of how humanity escaped a life of subsistence poverty and began to enjoy previously unthinkable wealth and longevity. It shows why this process took place so much earlier and faster in some regions while it is only just taking place in others, and explains why so many of our efforts to improve lives have failed and how they might succeed.
As humanity faces its greatest ever test, this book of urgent truths speaks across the political divide to arrive at universal lessons that are both hopeful and profound, revealing the keys not only to our species' thriving but to our survival.
