This lecture should prove useful to anyone who is planning a career in anything 
that will require important decision-making in environmental policy to 
financial crises. "The Ingenuity Gap" was a great read, so a lecture with 
Professor Thomas Homer-Dixon should prove enlightening for those who haven't 
read the book. Highly recommended.

The Ingenuity Gap: Making Split-Second Decisions that Change the World

Is our world becoming too complex and too fast-paced to manage? The 
challenges facing human societies -- from international financial crises and 
global climate change to pandemics of tuberculosis and AIDS -- converge, 
intertwine, and often remained largely beyond our understanding. Most of us 
suspect that the "experts" don't really know what's going on and that as a 
species we have released forces that are neither managed nor manageable. 
This is "the ingenuity gap" -- the critical gap between our need for 
practical and innovative ideas to solve complex problems and our actual 
supply of those ideas.
