    030. 1517 at Home: Samo Burja on Why Civilizations Collapse

    There are at least 12 identifiable Dark Ages in the recorded history of human civilization. Although we are all fascinated with the idea of the collapse of civilization, have we considered why civilizations actually collapse?

    Join Samo Burja, founder of Bismarck Analytics and research fellow at LongNow, to explore the causes behind civilizational collapse and how people like yourself can stay ahead of the curve. You can follow Samo on twitter @samoburja.

    Suggested readings from Samo:


    “Annoyance or Armageddon?”
    “Intellectual Dark Matter”
    “On the Loss and Preservation of Knowledge”
    “Institutional Failure as Surprise”

    Suggested Book: 1777 BC: The Year Civilization Collapsed

    029. 1517 at Home: Byrne Hobart on the Mimetic Theory of Bubbles

    029. 1517 at Home: Byrne Hobart on the Mimetic Theory of Bubbles

    Why do economic bubbles happen? Historically, theorists have proposed competing theories like the efficient market hypothesis, the easy money theory, and a “heroes and villains” theory. In this workshop and roundtable discussion we explored the mimetic desire theory of bubbles. Based on Rene Girard’s theory of mimetic desire, the mimetic theory of bubbles states that bubbles arise not from copying behavior, but from copying desire.
