Readers’ Roundtable: "Superabundance"
Is our modern lifestyle sustainable? Does capitalism encourage the over-consumption of goods? What do economics and history teach us about the earth’s ability to handle an ever-growing human population? To shed light on these questions, join the Adam Smith Society on Monday, July 24, at 1:00 p.m. ET for a virtual discussion with Cato Institute senior fellow Marian Tupy on his new book, Superabundance: The Story of Population Growth, Innovation, and Human Flourishing on an Infinitely Bountiful Planet.
As an installment of our Readers’ Roundtable series, this will be a closed Zoom call with the author.
