A good start to 2012…

This morning Matt Ridley popped into our offices for a coffee and a catch-up, and to share his reassuringly positive worldview at a time of such doom and gloom in the financial markets. Matt  put forward the case that although things look grim now, in the long term there’s no reason why living standards can’t (and won’t) continue to increase. He reckons that in the future we’ll look back and realise that yes, things were bad but that we will have prospered ever since, as we have done over thousands of years. For more information on why we have every reason to be optimistic, we recommend Matt’s book The Rational Optimist (Fourth Estate, 2011).
