The need for Everyday Wisdom

March 1, 2009

Rules often fail us. Incentives often backfire. But practical, everyday wisdom will help rebuild our world.  Barry Schwartz, a well-known psychologist currently studying the concept of “wisdom,” makes this powerful argument in his speech at last week’s TED conference in LA.

The conference is a melting pot for leaders who innovate ways to better the world and engage the challenges we face.
