Date & CEST time: Wednesday May 27th – 15:00 to 16:00
Speaker: Steen Rasmussen from University of Southern Denmark & Santa Fe Institute
Some conclusions from our workshops and working groups at the Lorentz Center and the Santa Fe Institute, 2015-2020
What is Steen’s talk about:
Based on data starting about year 1200 till today I will give a historical perspective of the coevolution of our physical and social technologies and what it means for our development of wealth. One of the main conclusions of our study is that our definition of wealth likely will change in the foreseeable future (Sibani & Rasmussen, 2020). A more true measure of wealth is access to solutions for human problems and not as now the sum of the value of products and services at the market (Beinhocker, 2017). Then I’ll give a few examples from our studies regarding possible solutions to mitigate the current mismatch between our physical and social technologies.
