Always look on the bright side of life

Matt Ridley

Your life is getting better every day, and it’s high time that you realized it!

There are many people that just feel like they have been dying since the day they were born. This is a very grim way to think of life. Don’t think of life this way!

Every generation looks backwards and reminisces about how good it used to be. Wake up! It wasn’t as good as it is now and tomorrow is going to be even better!

Want some clarity on this subject? Read: The Rational Optimist, by Matt Ridley on how prosperity evolves.

On what principle is it that when we see nothing but improvement behind us, we are to expect nothing but deterioration before us?

As necessities and luxuries gets cheaper, do people get happier?

Just two of all the questions that will be argued in this book.
