TED - James B. Glattfelder: Who controls the world?

Editor: Petter Reinholdtsen

Length: 0:14:11 (filler)
First broadcast: Nov. 10, 2019, 10:34 p.m.

James Glattfelder studies complexity: how an interconnected system -- say, a swarm of birds -- is more than the sum of its parts. And complexity theory, it turns out, can reveal a lot about how the economy works. Glattfelder shares a groundbreaking study of how control flows through the global economy, and how concentration of power in the hands of a shockingly small number leaves us all vulnerable.
