It is time for an optimistic take on the economy. I’m not talking about whether inflation keeps coming down, or recession is avoided. Rather, I’m talking about progress on some of humanity’s most intractable challenges: artificial intelligence, illnesses such as Alzheimer’s, obesity and climate change.

Americans are pessimistic these days, and I don’t expect to change their minds. Exactly five years ago I wrote that the world was getting relentlessly better. In the years since, pandemic, war and inflation have left a lot of the world sicker, poorer and angrier.
