A new book by #BjornLomborg is coming out, #BestThingsFirst. I listened to the 2-hour interview by #JordanPeterson released on April 3 (as usual, while on my bike and driving). The timing seems related to the upcoming #UnitedNations meeting in October, where we are at the midpoint of the #SustainableDevelopmentGoals #SDGs, and failing.
Here's a text summary of the interview. The list of 12 proposed initiatives isn't given as straightforward, but the idea that we might succeed on some things rather than failing on everything is likely to be appealing to many.
The "doable dozen" is a phrase that #BjornLomborg picked up from #JordanPeterson on the April 3 interview. The list is now more complete at Halftime for the Sustainable Development Goals microsite at https://www.copenhagenconsensus.com/halftime
> The 12 best policies to scale up, that our experts have identified, cover a wide range of areas: tuberculosis, education, maternal and newborn health, agricultural research and development, malaria, e-procurement, nutrition, land tenure security, chronic diseases, trade, child immunization and skilled migration.
> The benefit of these 12 best policies can really only be described as momentous. It will save 4.2 million lives each year and generate $1.1 trillion in additional economic benefits each and every year for the developing world.
