One thought

  1. As ever, it is fascinating at Big Think to read in the comments the stronger objections to your piece on the importance–even the moral importance–of economic growth. Surely such objections to the morality of economic growth are being expressed by people who have never read Adam Smith’s expansion of Hume in ‘Theory of Moral Sentiments.’

    Ridley’s recent book on prosperity also makes your argument, but the objectors must have skipped reading him as well.
