Mark de Rond - our speaker for the Winter Dinner.

Our speaker is Tom Cassidy, Principal and Co-founder of the Cambridge Leadership College

‘Emergence, Economics and Evolution: our role as architects of the future.’

Economics was originally a win-lose, zero-sum game: whatever I get, you cannot also have, arguably beginning with the allocated distribution of the first grain surplus.

Some of the emergent properties of economics as a competition for scarce resources are nations, capitalism, and exponentially increasing technology. 

The Win-lose game dynamics of this economic paradigm are increasingly becoming obsolete. The only possible future games are win-win or lose-lose.

In this talk Tom will be covering some of the key axiomatic changes to economics we might consider in order to create complex adaptive systems that naturally vector towards win-win.
