    In the breakthrough spirit of Against the Gods, William Bernstein's The Birth of Plenty has the topical uniqueness and storytelling panache to literally create its own category and reader. Based upon the premise that mankind experienced virtually zero economic growth from the dawn of time until 1820, this provocative, big-picture book identifies the four conditions necessary for sustained economic progress.

    Overall

    Dr. Bernstein uses expert historical analysis to explain what accounts for economic growth or lack thereof in different societies at different times. His analysis is readily applicable to emerging markets today and to future biomedical technologies of tomorrow. His storytelling is compelling. Well worth a listen for students of history, economics or science!
