While this book was an interesting overview of the way the economy works, it was a considerable disappointment to hear the author extole the virtues of an increasing population. This poor world has more than enough people and what we need is planning that will enable us to accommodate a stable or even decreasing population. Anyone who thinks, at this point in the earth's history, that we need more humans on the planet hasn't been paying attention.
Paul Reid has done and excellent job of finishing the work that Manchester had begun. Clive Chafer, too, is to be commended for making this third volume of the Churchill biography such an enjoyable listen.
