On this episode of Brigadoon Radio, Gerald Ashley, Nate Green, and Marc Ross discuss the French presidential election, nationalism vs. globalism, the Republican primary for US Senate in Ohio, JD Vance, John Fetterman, Boris Johnson, high-vis jackets, the future of downtown office buildings, vertical farms, the Santa Fe Institute, and what they are reading and watching.
The latest Podcast with Marc Ross is out now. This time we focus on some wider aspects of the Russian invasion of Ukraine, and also crypto currencies. We also review a thriller starring Benedict Cumberbatch and great book on financial crises by fund manager George Cooper.
In particular I was struck by this opening paragraph in the article (which is well worth reading)
“In The Structure of Scientific Revolutions, the philosopher of science Thomas Kuhn observed that scientists spend long periods taking small steps. They pose and solve puzzles while collectively interpreting all data within a fixed worldview or theoretical framework, which Kuhn called a paradigm. Sooner or later, though, facts crop up that clash with the reigning paradigm. Crisis ensues. The scientists wring their hands, reexamine their assumptions and eventually make a revolutionary shift to a new paradigm, a radically different and truer understanding of nature. Then incremental progress resumes.”
