Last month, Professor Schwartz gave a TEDtalk, titled “The real crisis? We stopped being wise.” In it, he “makes a passionate call for practical wisdom as an antidote to a society gone mad with bureaucracy. He argues powerfully that rules often fail us, incentives often backfire, and practical, everyday wisdom will help rebuild our world.” Here’s a video of the (21 minute) talk.
