Across the world, companies are creating new technologies to combat today’s economic and environmental challenges. Robert Bryce explores this trend — the opposite of what global catastrophists want to see — and offers insight into how this innovation will make the world a better place. In Smaller Faster Lighter Denser Cheaper: How Innovation Keeps Proving the Catastrophists Wrong, Bryce cites international examples of modern advances like mass-produced fertilizer, new energy sources, and advanced drill rigs, offering insight into how they’re creating a happier, freer, and ultimately, better world. Bryce is a Senior Fellow at the Manhattan Institute and the author of four books, including Power Hungry: The Myths of “Green” Energy and the Real Fuels of the Future.
