PROGRESS Ten Reasons to Look Forward to the Future

by | Read by Derek Perkins

Contemporary Culture • 7 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2017

A senior fellow at the libertarian Cato Institute, Johan Norberg argues that life has evolved to be radically better in every way. With a deliberate pace, Derek Perkins uses modulation in a flawless narration that is serious and informative as well as entertaining. The audiobook details how civilization has made phenomenal progress in freedom, sanitation, income, life expectancy, and the environment. Perkins's minimal yet recognizable British accent gives his narration increased gravity. Norberg credits technology and medical science advancements as major positive factors to consider. Relaxed and yet highly polished, Perkins's performance will likely convince even the most casually pessimistic listener that globalization and the rise of free economic markets have dramatically improved daily life and its future potential.
