The Power of Critical Thinking

at The Commonwealth Club (06:00 PM)
Leland Faust, Former Chairman, CSI Capital Management; Author, A Capitalist's Lament Richard Conn, International Attorney; Managing Partner, Innovate Partners LLC; Advisory Board Member, America’s Foundation for Chess; Consultant, World Chess Champion Magnus Carlsen 
Monday Night Philosophy initiates the new decade by analyzing the worlds of Wall Street, international high finance, international relations, international sports and international chess, and focuses on the power and the necessity in those worlds of critical thinking skills. Leland Faust and Richard Conn have been influential in those worlds and share an admiration for critical thinking's ability to affect complex accomplishments on the world stage. But they also share a lament about how rarely rational thinking dominates decision-making at that level. 
Hear about Boris Yeltsin's transformation of the Soviet Union, Garry Kasparov's continuing influence on world chess, and Wall Street's tricks on and treats for the world economy. Plus acquire a clear idea of why the 2020s don't have to repeat the 1920s, although they could be.
