    Best Days Behind Us (or Before Us?)

    in Technology

    Writing for the New York Times, Eduardo Porter claims that America’s Best Days May Be Behind It. Citing Robert J. Gordon, author of The Rise and Fall of American Growth, Porter makes the following claims:


    Innovation will trundle along at the same pace of the last 40 years, Professor Gordon predicts. Despite the burst of progress of the Internet era, total factor productivity — which captures innovation’s contribution to growth — rose over that period at about one-third the pace of the previous five decades.


    That’s hardly the worst part of the story. The labor force will continue to decline, as aging baby boomers leave the work force and women’s labor supply plateaus. And gains in education, an important driver of productivity that expanded sharply in the 20th century, will contribute little.


    Moreover, the growing concentration of income means that whatever the growth rate, most of the population will barely share in its fruits. Altogether, Professor Gordon argues, the disposable income of the bottom 99 percent of the population, which has expanded about 2 percent per year since the late 19th century, will expand over the next few decades at a rate little above zero.


    In short, wethe argument goes, we are seeing the rise of the first generation in US history who will not be better off than their parents.


    Is decline inevitable? Hosts Phil Bowermaster and Stephen Gordon argue that is is not. Moreover, they make that we are on the brink of unprecedented economic growth.


    Are the best days behind us or right in front of us? Tune in and explore.

    The Best Time Ever to Be Alive

    in Technology

    Hosts Phil Bowermaster and Stephen Gordon discuss a recent article in the Atlantic claiming that 2015 was The Best Year in History for the Average Human Being.


    A few highlights:


    In the US, 600,000 fewer than violent crimes in 2014  in 1995—that’s a 35 percent decline over the period


    6.7 million fewer kids under the age of five are dying each year compared to 1990


    The number of kids not in school has fallen from 100 million in 2000 to a projected 57 million in 2015.


    The World Bank declared in September that, for the first time ever, less than 10 percent of the global population lived in extreme poverty, on less than $1.90 per day.



    What Does it All Mean?


    Why doesn’t it feel like the best time to be alive?


    Why is everyone so upset all the time? 


    What is the likelihood that these trends will continue / accelerate?


     


    Plus:


    Phil and Stephen provide a list of 25 more things that it is the  best time ever to to do.
