Still more on World3 and The Limits to Growth. Two weeks ago I gave a talk at Harvard on all this, and the video is now online. (Link repaired 2019-05-14.)
The slides are here. (Link repaired 2019-05-14.)
I can’t seem to get to the slides. Do I need to download something?
@Brie Finegold: The link works for me. What happens (or doesn’t happen) when you click it? What browser are you using?
First, I have been a fan of your work for some time, and was excited to read your “Limits to Growth” columns. I actually took a course from Jay Forrester in 1979 where he discussed his work.
I’d appreciate input on the following idea: Linking Politician’s policy prescriptions into the model. The goal would -not- be to predict the -exact- policy outcome, rather to clarify the exact prescriptions being made and make clear to the electorate the implications of certain policies. Perhaps it could be tied into the National Budget Office’s model. So, after seeing saw your Harvard Video, I believe I understand a few of the problems you would see with the approach, but wondered if it was done at the appropriate level of generality, whether it might provide some value in your opinion. -Thanks-
I appreciate your information very much. I’ve been working on Buckminster Fuller’s principles since some year already. I can not get to the video or slides. The video is on the Harvard page and I’m not allowed to get in there. The sides are not at the link any longer. Maybe everything it too old already? Any chance to get the video?
Link rot! Bit rot! Thanks much for letting me know.
Both items have wandered off to other corners of the net sometime over the past seven years, but I have tracked them down and repaired the links.
