"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"
Is the world really falling apart? Is the ideal of progress obsolete? Cognitive scientist and public intellectual Steven Pinker urges us to step back from the gory headlines and prophecies of doom, and instead, follow the data: In seventy-five jaw-dropping graphs, Pinker shows that life, health, prosperity, safety, peace, knowledge, and happiness are on the rise.

There is a solution! I cannot recommend this book highly enough. And author Miguel Reynolds Brandao is already taking it another step, implementing the concepts in his book with Nadia Morais: Look up MarketFinancedInventions.com for a peek of what is coming--and this is only the beginning.
This is not just a book; it's a MOVEMENT!
I love the way they connected background information and various approaches to statistics to provide a better picture of what is happening in countries and the difference in income levels. Also, the answer to "does money bring happiness" and "why did it become a trend for the biggest millionairs to give away the majority of their fortune" have been approached brilliantly.
In some ways is is very insightful but I fear it may be too complex for many people to both understand and implement.
I hope these comments are helpful.

The idea is not to be a modern-day Robin Hood (stealing from the rich and giving to the poor); rather, the idea is to introduce a new model of thinking, which thrives upon what it means to be truly happy and satisfied; and then, what it means to practice generosity. I believe that generosity and gratitude are the ultimate fuel powers of equality, as these characteristics work wonders in both the very fortunate and the much less fortunate. In this light, any dissertation that studies the model for true happiness and real fulfillment in the more-than-material context, is indeed introducing something worthwhile.
Oftentimes, the corporate scene and the whole matter of economies and so on and so forth, can be very intimidating to many people. But The Sustainable Organisation aims to make every person feel that they have the power to scrutinize the established status quo, and make steps for change where such steps are needed to be taken. I believe that herein lies the most powerful point in this book.
I am not one to read long dissertations on such subjects, and I was surprised to come away from this work feeling empowered in a distinct way. For that, I feel thankful. I think you will, too.
