If you’re really in favor of more abundant resources, then you really have to be in favor of people having the freedom to innovate, discover, share, and consume knowledge.”

 Author Gale Pooley joins Cole to discuss his book, Superabundance: The Story of Population Growth, Innovation, and Human Flourishing on an Infinitely Bountiful Planet. Along with co-author Marian Tupy, Gale’s research explores the way, contrary to popular belief, resources have become more abundant as the world’s population has grown. The conversation covers “time prices”, climate change, and how more people leads to more innovation.
