Getting Better: Why Global Development Is Succeeding

Dr. J. chats with Charles Kenny about his book Getting Better: Why Global Development Is Succeeding—And How We Can Improve the World Even More. They talk about how the spread of ideas and institutions, such as democracy and political rights, and of cheap technologies, such as vaccines and bed nets, are improving the quality of life of the world’s poor. Charles Kenny is a senior economist on leave from the World Bank, and a joint fellow at the New America Foundation and the Center for Global Development. He writes a weekly column for Foreign Policy called “The Optimist.”
