In our interview, we discuss:
- Development policy — what works for growth? Can a few bad policies can be blamed for poverty?
- Charter cities
- The case for open borders
- Democracy — is it overrated? Why do voters keep choosing bad policies? Do democracies last longer, grow faster, and go to war less?
- Stable global totalitarianism
- Should longtermists care more about having more children? Is the cost of subsidising a new life competitive with the cost of saving a life?
- How many children is Bryan's book counterfactually responsible for?
