A wildly ambitious attempt to do for economics what Newton, Darwin or Einstein did for their fields: develop a theory that explains almost everything ... an inspiring, readable, jargon-free and almost impossibly erudite masterwork, the boldest possible attempt to write the economic history of humanity.
This breakthrough scientific masterwork - and international bestseller - reveals the underlying forces that have shaped human history and will secure our future...
The stunning advances that have transformed human experience in recent centuries are no accident of history - they are the result of universal and timeless forces, operating since the dawn of our species. Drawing on a lifetime's scientific investigation, Oded Galor's ground-breaking new vision overturns a host of long-held assumptions.
Oded Galor is Professor of economics at Brown University and the founder of Unified Growth Theory, which seeks to uncover the fundamental causes of development, prosperity, and inequality across the span of human history. more
