Very interesting video on “Where are we going? And what can we do?” about financial markets, critical points, ecology, biology, and other issues of the Anthropocene by Didier Sornette. Humans are growing at a super-exponential rate, so what does this mean? He also points out the importance of non-linear behavior in markets and the concept of Dragon-Kings. Also, here is a link to a good interview with Sornette thanks to ZURICH.MINDS.
For anyone interested in watching some of his lectures, here is a link.
