Matt Ridley

“It is strange to me that most people assume companies will be imperfect (as they are), but they assume that government agencies will be perfect, which they are not.”

Matt Ridley is a British journalist and businessman best known for his writings on science, the environment, and economics. He received his B.S. and a PhD in Philosophy from Oxford University. He is the author of provocative books on evolution, genetics and society. He argues that human beingsability to connect, collaborate and cooperate gives our species an often underestimated capacity for change and social progress. He worked for The Economist for nine years as science editor, was a Washington correspondent and American editor, before becoming a self-employed writer, speaker and businessman.

He currently writes The Mind and Matter column in The Wall Street Journal and writes regularly for The Times. In his best-selling book, The Rational Optimist: How Prosperity Evolves, Matt takes on contemporary pessimism to argue that, in spite of disasters and reverses, the world has been getting better and better for humanity over the last two centuries, and that our quality of life and material wealth will continue to increase in the 21st century. In our lifetime, lifespan has increased by one third and child mortality has fallen by two thirds. His new book, The Evolution of Everything: How Ideas Emerge, argues that humanitys most important achievements develop from the bottom up, and counters conventional assumptions that major scientific and social imperatives are dictated by top-down authorities.
