Here's a short list of important books to complement my essay:… by @stewartbrand on why even environmentalists should be pro building, pro cities, pro nuclear, and pro genetic engineering.… by @amcafee on how modern technological economies can build more outputs with less inputs, and why we need all economies to be modern and technological.… by William Lewis on how technology-driven productivity growth improves human welfare and creates more jobs and higher wages.… by George Gilder @ScandalOfMoney on how economic systems that encourage aggressive entrepreneurship build the most for the benefit of the most.… by Charles Morris on how four great builders of the 19th century built the world we live in today.… by Edmund Morris on perhaps the greatest American builder of all, the builder who brought electricity to us all, Thomas Edison.… by Edward Glaeser @triumphofcity on the central role cities play in our world and why it's so important for us to build them -- more, bigger, better.… by @ConorDougherty on why we can't build in great American cities like San Francisco today and what we need to do about it.
And finally… “An Apology For The Builder” by Nicholas Barbon, written in 1685. HT @tylercowen. Some things never change!
