i wasn't able to access the third video, but i was reminded of this quote by the others: "This is my long-run forecast in brief: The material conditions of life will continue to get better for most people, in most countries, most of the time, indefinitely. Within a century or two, all nations and most of humanity will be at or above today's Western living standards. I also speculate, however, that many people will continue to THINK AND SAY that the conditions of life are getting WORSE." -Julian Simon (1932-98), Professor of Economics, University of Maryland (Regis 1997:198)
