“The History of the Near Future: What history tells us about our Age of Discord”
Social and political turbulence in the United States and a number of European countries has been rising in recent years. Peter’s research, which combines analysis of historical data with the tools of complexity science, has identified the deep structural forces that work to undermine societal stability and resilience to internal and external shocks.
In his talk, Peter looks beneath the surface of day-to-day contentious politics and social unrest, and focuses on the negative social and economic trends that explain our current “Age of Discord.”
