13 editions published in 1984 in English and held by 1,341 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"We are confident that the nature of the physical world permits continued improvement in humankind's economic lot in the long rung run, indefinitely. Of course there are always newly arising local problems, shortages and pollutions, due to climate or to increased population and income. Some times temporary large-scale problems arise. But the nature of the world's physical condition and the resilience in a well-functioning economic and social system enable us to overcome such problems, and the solutions usually leave us better off than if the problem had never arisen; that is the great lesson to be learned from human history. We are less optimistic, however, about the constraints currently imposed upon material progress by political and institutional forces, in conjunction with popularly-held beliefs and attitudes about natural resources and the environment...trends point towards deterioration rather than towards improvement..." -- Introduction

The ultimate resource 2 by Julian Lincoln Simon ( Book )
16 editions published between 1996 and 1998 in English and held by 728 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Arguing that the ultimate resource is the human imagination coupled to the human spirit, Julian Simon led a vigorous challenge to conventional beliefs about scarcity of energy and natural resources, pollution of the environment, the effects of immigration, and the "perils of overpopulation." The comprehensive data, careful quantitative research, and economic logic contained in the first edition of The Ultimate Resource questioned widely held professional judgments about the threat of overpopulation, and Simon's celebrated bet with Paul Ehrlich about resource prices in the 1980s enhanced the public attention--both pro and con--that greeted this controversial book. Now Princeton University Press presents a revised and expanded edition of The Ultimate Resource. The new volume is thoroughly updated and provides a concise theory for the observed trends: Population growth and increased income put pressure on supplies of resources. This increases prices, which provides opportunity and incentive for innovation. Eventually the innovative responses are so successful that prices end up below what they were before the shortages occurred. The book also tackles timely issues such as the supposed rate of species extinction, the "vanishing farmland crisis," and the wastefulness of coercive recycling. In Simon's view, the key factor in natural and world economic growth is our capacity for the creation of new ideas and contributions to knowledge. The more people alive who can be trained to help solve the problems that confront us, the faster we can remove obstacles, and the greater the economic inheritance we shall bequeath to our descendants. In conjunction with the size of the educated population, the key constraint on human progress is the nature of the economic-political system: talented people need economic freedom and security to bring their talents to fruition.--Publisher description

Scarcity or abundance? : a debate on the environment by Norman Myers ( Book )
6 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 676 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Never before have questions about our relationship with the environment loomed so large in human affairs. Is the world at an historical threshold, where we risk dooming ourselves and our planet if we don't change the way we exploit the Earth's resources? Or are environmentalists being alarmists, underestimating nature's resilience and humanity's adaptiveness? Is species extinction something we really need to worry about? Can we find new supplies or substitutes for scarce resources?

Hoodwinking the nation by Julian Lincoln Simon ( Book )
4 editions published between 1999 and 2006 in English and held by 613 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Most people in the United States believe that our environment is getting dirtier, we are running out of natural resources, and population growth in the world is a burden and a threat. These beliefs, according to Simon, are entirely wrong. Why do the media report so much false bad news about the environment, resources, and population? And why do we believe it? Those are the questions Julian L. Simon set out to answer in his book, Hoodwinking the Nation." "The purpose of this book is not to preach but to examine. Most importantly, it aims to consider whether institutional structures can be changed in a way that would allow more sanctions against undesirable practices and unethical behavior. This volume will be valuable to political economists and sociologists, and the general reader concerned with environmental issues and their social impacts."--BOOK JACKET

The great breakthrough and its cause by Julian Lincoln Simon ( Book )
6 editions published between 2000 and 2001 in English and held by 366 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"One of Julian Simon's last works-in-progress, cut short just before completion by his death in early 1998, The Great Breakthrough and Its Cause explores the question of why human progress accelerated in Western Europe starting around 1750. Why did the mortality rate, household consumption level, speeds of travel and communication, literacy rate, and other aspects of the standard of living leap above those in the previous centuries and millennia? What forces caused this extraordinary development to occur when it did - or even to occur at all - rather than centuries or millennia earlier or later?" "Simon answers these questions by arguing persuasively that the total quantity of humanity - and the nexus of human numbers with technology - has been the main driving force behind what he calls "Sudden Modern Progress." Further, he continues, if population numbers had risen more rapidly than they did, the "Great Breakthrough" would have occurred earlier. He also asserts that institutional changes, phenomena often credited for human progress, are from a very long-run perspective a result of population growth. And finally, he seeks to refute two seeming counterexamples, China and India, that reached high population densities prior to the modern period without accelerated growth in consumer welfare. In his inimitable style, Simon meticulously backs up his arguments with extensive use of a wide variety of data. Along the way, he also takes on the arguments of other writers on the subject of population growth and progress, such as Joel Mokyr and Eric Jones." "Completed and polished by Timur Kuran, this exploration into the great explosion of consumer welfare will stimulate, challenge, and foster high-level intellectual debate on the question of human progress. It will be of particular interest to demographers, economic historians, and a broad array of social scientists."--BOOK JACKET
