A revolutionary look at the way the world works by the "New Yorker's" financial columnist, this work investigates how large groups of people run their businesses, organize society, structure their political system, fight terrorism, and think about the future--all better than an elite few.
From the Publisher:
In this fascinating book, "New Yorker "business columnist James Surowiecki explores a deceptively simple idea: Large groups of people are "smarter" than an elite few, no matter how brilliant-better at solving problems, fostering innovation, coming to wise decisions, even predicting the future.
With boundless erudition and in delightfully clear prose, Surowiecki ranges across fields as diverse as popular culture, psychology, ant biology, behavioral economics, artificial intelligence, military history, and politics to show how this simple idea offers important lessons for how we live our lives, select our leaders, run our companies, and think about our world.
