In this talk Paul Collier explains how using natural resources together with technology and checking the regulation, we can get prosperity worlwide. "Without regulation, you get plunder; without technology, you get hunger". In his book, The Plundered Planet, Paul Collier talks about how and whether poverty alleviation and care for the environment for future generations may be reconciled.
The book sets out to try to solve the dilemmas that arise from natural assets in developing countries. He writes that economics and environmental studies need each other and can be compatible.
