This is a very exciting time for The Human Current! We have just come back from a wonderful conference week at The Ninth International Conference on Complex Systems (ICCS) and are about to release our 100th podcast episode!
While at ICCS we collected 30 interviews and have released 8 of these interviews so far, including Professor Yaneer Bar-Yam, Professor Ricardo Hausmann, Steven Hassan, Professor Natalia Komarova & Professor George Church!
Soon we will share our interview with one of the founding fathers of complexity science, Stephen Wolfram.
We recently interviewed complexity scientist, professor, and founding president of the New England Complex Systems Institute (NECSI), Yaneer Bar-Yam. Professor Bar-Yam talked with us about a new research paper published by NECSI entitled, Preliminary Steps Toward a Universal Economic Dynamics for Monetary and Fiscal Policy. Bar-Yam, along with researchers, Jean Langlois-Meurinne, Mari Kawakatsu, and Rodolfo Garcia wrote this paper to explore why it took such a long time for our economy to achieve economic growth after the most recent financial crisis in 2008.
Recently, we shared our podcast interview with Yaneer Bar-Yam who is a complexity scientist, researcher, author, professor, and founder of the New England Complex Systems Institute (NECSI). Yaneer received his SB and PhD in Physics from MIT and has an extensive background in using principles and insights from complex systems science to better the world. He is the author of two fantastic books: a textbook called Dynamics of Complex Systems and Making Things Work, which applies complex systems science to solving problems in healthcare, education, systems engineering, international development, and ethnic conflict. He is also the author of over 200 research papers in professional journals and has 3 patents.
