    You can view this talk with the video on the GPI YouTube channel. Public Lecture: The Journey of Humanity - Oded Galor 10 June 2022

    In The Journey of Humanity Oded Galor offers a revelatory explanation of how humanity became, only very recently, the unique species to have escaped a life of subsistence poverty, enjoying previously unthinkable wealth and longevity.

He shows why so many of our efforts to improve lives have failed and how they might succeed.
