Thanks so much for this series Michael. Your critique of 'presentism' and all these stats and info are incredibly helpful in sifting out the noise and getting a proper perspective.

btw - has Development as Freedom, by Amartya Sen, featured in your reading. He presents 'freedom' as the supreme measure of, and means to attain, development (in every sense of the word). With 2 young children I haven't had enough brain cells to make progress on it, but I'd be interested to know what you think.

Thanks Simon, and thanks for reading along.

I haven't read Dev. as Freedom all the way through, although I have it here on my shelf. (Like you, I keep meaning to get read.) I understand Sen be focused on quality of life questions versus pure economic measures. What I've read of about him and by him I resonate with. I think that will unfold to some degree in the next series.
