Please join us for a private brunch and conversation with CEI’s 2023 Julian L. Simon Memorial Awardees Gale L. Pooley and Marian L. Tupy. In their book, Superabundance: The Story of Population Growth, Innovation, and Human Flourishing on an Infinitely Bountiful Planet, Pooley and Tupy analyze the prices of commodities, goods, and services over two hundred years and find resources increase faster than the human population.
“Their work advances our understanding – and that of economic science – of how prices transform scarcity to abundance. Ingenuity is the secret weapon for superabundance. Like Julian Simon before them, Tupy and Pooley light the way forward with a thunderbolt of insight to inform how we understand and implement solutions to problems like famine, overpopulation, poverty, and disease.”
