Why Societies Fail >by Jared Diamond

| |


Based on his timely book Collapse: How Societies Choose to Fail or Succeed, Jared Diamond gives a brilliant historical analysis about previous civilisations that have risen and fallen with lessons from the Norse of Iron Age Greenland, deforested Easter Island and present-day Montana.  Diamond talks about the signs that collapse is near, and how -- if we see it in time -- we can prevent it.

Jared Diamond is an award-winning scholar of ecology, biology and history, and best-selling author of Guns, Germs and Steel and Collapse: How Societies Choose to Fail or Succeed

TED TALKS is a brilliant series of lectures and talks by leading thinkers from around the world.
