    PROGRESS: 10 REASONS TO LOOK FORWARD TO THE FUTURE

    Due to contract restrictions, this presentation will not be recorded or archived.

    Johan Norberg is an author, lecturer, documentary filmmaker, and a native of Sweden. He lectures about entrepreneurship, global trends and globalization around the world. He is a frequent commentator in Swedish and international media, and has a regular column in Sweden’s biggest daily, Metro. The 15 books he has written and the three books he has edited cover a broad range of topics, including global economics, intellectual history, and the science of happiness. Norberg is a Senior Fellow at the Cato Institute in Washington D.C., and a Senior Fellow at the European Centre for International Political Economy in Brussels. According to the daily news our world seems to be collapsing: divisive politics across the Western world, racism, poverty, war, inequality, hunger. While politicians, journalists and activists from all sides talk about the damage done, Johan Norberg, in his book Progress, offers an illuminating and heartening analysis of just how far we have come in tackling the greatest problems facing humanity. In the face of fear-mongering, darkness and division, the facts are unequivocal: the golden age is now.
