During the next few weeks I will have much more to say about Matt Ridley’s spectacular new book, The Rational Optimist. To launch my effort to persuade every living creature to read Matt’s book I post this video of the talk that Matt recently gave at the Mercatus Center at GMU.  (HT Claire Morgan)

By the way – and this, admittedly, from a blogger who named his son ‘Thomas Macaulay Boudreaux’ – Thomas Babington Macaulay’s 1830 essay mentioned by Matt in this talk is among the greatest literary achievements of the past 200 years.
