How and why our conventional economic thinking causes global crises (discussion paper)

Dirk Helbing, ETH Zurich (05 April 2013)

I believe it's no wonder that our world is in trouble. We currently lack the global systems science needed to understand our world, which is now changing more quickly than we can collect the experience required to cope with upcoming problems. We can also not trust our intuition, since the complex systems we have created behave often in surprising, counter-intuitive ways. Frequently, their properties are not determined by their components, but their interactions. Therefore, a strongly coupled world behaves fundamentally different from a weakly coupled world with independent decision-makers. Strong interactions tend to make the system uncontrollable - they create cascading effects and extreme events. ...

Rosaria Conte, Nigel Gilbert, Giulia Bonelli, and Dirk Helbing (19 July 2011)

Imagine storing all the computational information produced in the world in just one year: you would have a pile of DVDs able to reach the Moon and back. How about all the data collected since the beginning of the computer era? The quantity is so huge that traditional units of measurement cannot cope.
