Bookshop Barnie - Matt Ridley
In a recent review of The Rational Optimist, Fred Pearce criticises Ridley for becoming the 'chief cheerleader for a cornucopian view of the world'. George Monbiot goes one further, saying that 'it's the same old cornutopian nonsense we've heard one hundred times before (cornutopians are people who envisage a utopia of limitless abundance).'
Come along to this Bookshop Barnie with Matt Ridley and Austin Williams and find out if there is anything wrong with cornucopias!
