The Art of Interconnected Thinking

Published 2002 – Structural unemployment, alarming changes in the environment, periodical signs of an imminent Stock Exchange crash, involvement in armed conflicts: we are faced with an increasingly complex world and the inadequacy of conventional ways of thinking is becoming progressively more evident.

Over twenty years of the author’s experience with matters of this type are summarised here in a practical guide for politicians, managers and all others who have to or wish to think in such contexts.
