March 6, 2024: The power of unconventional thinking

From World War I to the 2008 economic collapse and beyond, history shows that economists don’t always see the future as clearly as they think they do, says economist David McWilliams.

Using the words of W.B. Yeats, McWilliams makes the case for embracing unconventional thinkers – poets, artists and musicians – and offers a creative path towards a world filled with less confirmation bias and more understanding. Join TEDxMidAtlanticSalon host Dori Kelner for this special 1-hour event Wednesday, March 6 at 7pm ET, via Zoom. Registration is free.
