4. Thinking Fast and Slow - Daniel Kahneman in conversation with Richard Layard [Audio]

Thinking Fast and Slow - Daniel Kahneman in conversation with Richard Layard [Audio]

Speaker(s): Professor Daniel Kahneman, Professor Lord Richard Layard | Two systems drive the way we think and make choices: System One is fast, intuitive, and emotional; System Two is slower, more deliberative, and more logical. Over many years, Daniel Kahneman has conducted groundbreaking research into this – in his own words – "machinery of the mind". Fast thinking has extraordinary capabilities, but also faults and biases. Intuitive impressions have a pervasive influence on our thoughts and our choices. Only by understanding how the two systems work together, Kahneman shows, can we learn the truth about the role of optimism in opening up a new business, and the importance of luck in a successful corporate strategy, or the difficulties of predicting what will make us happy in the future, and the psychological pitfalls of playing the stock market. Kahneman shows where we can trust our intuitions and how we can tap into the benefits of slow thinking. He offers practical and enlightening insights into how choice are made in both our business and personal lives – and how we can guard against the mental glitches that often get us into trouble. This public conversation between Professor Kahneman and Professor Lord Layard celebrates the publication of Kahneman's new book Thinking, Fast and Slow. Daniel Kahneman is Eugene Higgins Professor of Psychology Emeritus at Princeton University and a Professor of Public Affairs Emeritus at the Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs. The recipient of the 2002 Nobel Prize in Economics for his seminal work in psychology that challenged the rational model of judgment and decision making, his ideas have had a profound and widely regarded impact on many disciplines – including economics, business, law and philosophy. Until now, he has never brought together his many years of research and thinking in one book. Richard Layard is Emeritus Professor of Economics at the London School of Economics, where he was, until 2003, the founder-director of the Centre for Economic Performance. He now heads the Centre's Programme on Well-Being. Since 2000 he has been a member of the House of Lords. Tue, 15 Nov 2011 18:30:00 GMT

10. Rethinking Capitalism [Audio]

Rethinking Capitalism [Audio]

Speaker(s): Michael Jacobs, Professor Mariana Mazzucato | Western capitalism is in trouble. For decades investment has been falling, living standards have stagnated or declined, and inequality has risen dramatically. Economic policy has neither reformed the financial system nor restored stable growth. Climate change meanwhile poses increasing risks to future prosperity. In this joint lecture, Mariana Mazzucato and Michael Jacobs will propose new ways of thinking about capitalism. Drawing on their new book, Rethinking Capitalism: Economics and Policy for Sustainable and Inclusive Growth they will show how today’s deep economic problems reflect the inadequacies of orthodox economic theory and the failure of economic policies informed by it. They will show how alternative economic approaches can better explain how capitalism works, why it often doesn’t, and how it can be made more innovative, inclusive and sustainable. Michael Jacobs (@michaelujacobs) is Visiting Professor in the School of Public Policy and Department of Political Science at University College London and Visiting Fellow at the Institute for Public Policy Research. An environmental economist and political theorist, his work has focused on the political economy of environmental change.

The Organised Mind: thinking straight in the age of information overload [Audio]

Speaker(s): Professor Daniel J Levitin | The information age is drowning us in a deluge of data, and it is becoming increasingly difficult to separate facts from pseudo-facts, objective from biased sources, and at the same time, we’re all being asked to do more at home and at work. Yet some highly successful people are able to stay highly efficient and productive. I’ll review the cognitive neuroscience of attention and memory, and how recent findings can help all of us to become more productive. This talk will address the myth of multi-tasking, advice for how to better structure our time, and how to better organize decision making using examples from health care contexts. I’ll also share secrets from some of the highly successful people I spoke to in doing research for the book: CEOs of some of the largest corporations in the world, artists, scientists, nobel prize winners, generals, admirals, governors, senators, and U.S. cabinet members. Daniel J Levitin (@danlevitin) is James McGill Professor of Psychology, Behavioural Neuroscience and Music at McGill University in Montreal.

18. Capitalism [Audio]

Capitalism [Audio]

Speaker(s): Professor Jonathan Wolff | For much of the early part of the twentieth century, political theorists debated the moral and economic merits of capitalism in competition with communism. With the collapse of the Soviet Union and its satellites, and the triumph of the market economy, those on the political left briefly flirted with the idea of market socialism. But critics of capitalism are running out of alternative ideas, to the point that a placard at an anti-capitalism march proclaimed 'Replace Capitalism with Something Nice!'. In this year's Ralph Oppenheimer Memorial Lecture Professor Jonathan Wolff will ask: Are we stuck with capitalism? How far can it be modified? How far should it be modified? The event will include an introduction by David Edmonds in honour of Ralph Oppenheimer. Jonathan Wolff (@JoWolffBSG) is Blavatnik Professor of Public Policy, Blavatnik School of Government, University of Oxford.
