Over the past 250 years, there has been an explosion of human wealth. More than 97% of all wealth ever in existence was created during this period. Why did this happen? What forces have driven it? The Origin of Wealth answers these questions. The book traces the history of economics, examines today's economy through the lens of complexity economics, and explains the forces that have been driving the growth of wealth.
