Why did modern science ignite in 17th -century Western Europe when China, Islam, and India had been so much more advanced for 1,000 years? How does understanding the behavior we see in a glass of water help us understand the fate of companies and empires? How can we use these insights to help our institutions shape the next 1,000 or 10,000 years?
Safi Bahcall is the author of the 2019 NYT Bestseller — Loonshots: How to Nurture the Crazy Ideas That Win Wars, Cure Diseases, and Transform Industries
