I’ve just spent the last hour watching various talks from previous TEDs, which from what I can gather is a symposium about exchanging ideas from innovative people from around the world. If you have an iPod, these would be great videos or podcasts (about 20 minutes long each) for a commute.
While not necessarily all money-related, many of them touch on economics and business. Here are a few that I found intriguing:
|Rethinking Poverty: Novogratz
Jacqueline Novogratz is the founder and CEO of Acumen Fund, a non-profit that takes a business-like approach to improving the lives of the poor.
|Myths About The Developing World
(The graphics on this talk should not be missed.)
|The Freaking Point: Gladwell
(watch this one and the next one together)
|The Pursuit of Happiness: Schwartz
|The Freaking Point: Levitt
(Not too new if you’ve read the book.)
I really think I might listen to them all, if I find the time.
