So much depends on whether we see our era as a nightmare of crime, terrorism, genocide and war or as a period that, in the light of the historical and statistical FACTS, is blessed by unprecedented levels of peaceful coexistence.
— Steven Pinker

The Clear Progress Project has two goals.  To provide illuminating statistics about societal progress, and to explain the cognitive biases that make us not want to believe them.

 

Ok, you made it through the video and you're still here?  Nice!

These biases may seem like just an interesting feature of our psychology - but it is oh so important to acknowledge and correct for them. 

If we can't correctly evaluate our trajectory - how can we make good decisions about the future?

Compelling information about the stats and biases awaits on our blog!!!

Examining official data from the United Nations, the World Bank and the World Health Organization, political commentator Johan Norberg traces just how far we have come in tackling the issues that define our species. While it's true that not every problem has been solved, we do now have a good idea of the solutions and we know what it will take to see this progress continue. Dramatic, uplifting and counter-intuitive, Progress is a call for optimism in our pessimistic, doom-laden world.
