Julian Simon ~ Doomslayer & Cornucopian Hero

Thanks to Dot Earth for reminding me of Professor Julian Simon, famous doomslayer and cornucopian futurist who grounded his thinking -- and books like The Ultimate Resource -- in a long view of the facts and statistics of our world. Check out this video interview (first of multiple parts)... And see here a compelling piece by Paul Dragos Aligica titled Julian Simon and the "Limits to Growth" Neo-Malthusianism.
