Eyes Wide Open: how to make smart decisions in a confusing world

LSE public lecture

We face momentous decisions with important consequences throughout our lives. Fortunately, we have never had better access to information and expertise, but the data deluge has become a double-edged sword. So who should we believe? In a world of unprecedented complexity can the past still serve as our guide? What role do emotions play in our decision-making? Which expert advice, if any, should we trust? Noreena Hertz will address such questions in a provocative and inspiring lecture based on her new book "Eyes Wide Open: How to Make Smart Decisions in a Confusing World".

Noreena Hertz is a best-selling author and academic, described by "The Observer" as ‘one of the world’s leading thinkers’. She has provided keynote addresses at TED and the World Economic Forum, advises a range of major corporations and is associate director of the Centre for International Business and Management, University of Cambridge.
