That's pretty cool, and part of why I'm an optimist in the long run too. Besides the general trends, the more people who are secure enough to worry about things beyond survival, the more inventions and improvements can come.

Though I wonder a little about the money axis, was he using nominal numbers, or adjusting it to account for inflation/purchasing power?

Not to temper your optimism unduly, but the period in question tracks not only the Industrial Revolution, but also the extensive use of fossil fuels.

If we want to maintain the same trend, we need to find a replacement. Or, dramatically change how we live.
