Discussion on Unintended Consequences

Event Details

Unintended consequences or "second-order effects" are common in business, tech, politics, and every facet of our lives. Let's learn why by looking at examples, causes of these effects, and counteractions.

In this one-hour talk, we'll discuss examples of unintended consequences in policy, ecosystems, morality, scaling effects, and more... How did these consequences come about? And what could be done (if anything) to prevent them?
