Copenhagen Consensus

For those who are concerned about global development, the Copenhagen Consensus should be of interest. The conference is teeming with Nobel Laureates in economics. The idea is this: with specified limited resources, what should the priorities be to best improve human life? A refreshing alternative view to the trillions that get wasted in development and the media portrayal of issues that ignore resource constraints forgetting the unfortunate tradeoffs that must be made. Ron Bailey is covering the event for Reason Magazine. (h/t Instapundit)
