Talks Barry Schwartz: The real crisis? We stopped being wise

Check out Barry Schwartz on

He has a lot of interesting things to say.....I suggest that you start with the link below:



  1. It is nice to hear wisdom and virtue back in the vocabulary. It's sad that it has taken so many years to revert to the basics of yesteryears that founded our wonderful country.


  2. For some reason, as I watched this talk I started thinking about the "Fred Frindly Seminars".

    Fred Friendly was a journalist who used to assemble about 15 noted experts and pose difficult moral questions to them.

    What followed were increadible thoughtful discussions about the topic at hand. You should check it out. The forum is akin to what Barry Schwartz is talking about regarding wisdom adn morality.
