Dr Matt Ridley

Dr Matt Ridley

Independent Author

Matt Ridley argues that human beings’ ability to connect, collaborate and co-operate gives your species an often underestimated capacity for change and social progress. His latest book, The Rational Optimist (2010), was long listed for the FT’s Business Book of the Year. Matt takes on contemporary pessimism to argue that, in spite of disasters and reverses, the world has been getting better and better for humanity over the last two centuries, and that out quality of life and material wealth will continue to increase in the 21st century.
