How Our Species Can Survive and Thrive with Oded Galor
History & Social Policy • 1h 25m
In April 2022 Oded Galor - an economist at Brown University - came to the Intelligence Squared stage in London to set out his radical new ideas about human progress. In this hope-infused conversation, Galor weaves together insights from technology, demography, colonialism, geography and culture to explain how we got to where we are today and how all of humanity can thrive in the future. After hearing him speak, you might never see the world and our species in quite the same way again.
