Ian Goldin: Navigating Our Global Future

A TedTalk from 2009, Mr. Goldin raised the question why the people up at the top have failed to foresee all kinds of disasters happening and also failed to manage the consequences of these disasters. He is concerned that if people do not work together to improve the situation, the coming 20 years will be the undoing of mankind.

As of this point in time, 2013 August, nothing has changed at the top of the global financial systems. Not one single person has be held accountable. No rules are created to stop similar financial disasters from happening again.

The systematic risk in our global financial system has increased to the point that it can break any time. Yet, no one from the top of the system will to do anything about it. The future according to Mr. Goldin does not look good at all.
