The Global Case for Optimism [S3, E27]
Play • 29 min

Good news has been in short supply these days. From the devastation of the COVID-19 pandemic to racial violence and polarization, it seems like the world is taking a global gut-punch. But despite the massive challenges ahead, is humanity overall still on the up-and-up? Charles Kenny, Director of Technology and Development and Senior Fellow at the Center for Global Development, joins Altamar to explain why the doom-mongers are wrong. His current work focuses on gender and development, the role of technology in development, governance, and anti-corruption. He is the author of numerous books on improving the world. His latest, “The Plague Cycle,” explores humankind’s struggles with infectious disease.
