On this week’s show, Chris and his guest, Paul Collier, author of The Plundered Planet, will have a lively discussion about how must, and how we can, manage nature for global prosperity. Proper stewardship of natural resources is a matter of planetary urgency: they have the potential to either transform the poorest countries or to tear them apart. These issues affect our environment, our politics and our global economy.
