Our Ideas

The Centre’s approach starts from a series of ideas we have been developing around complexity science and economic relationships; the cognitive and emotional challenges faced when decisions must be made under radical uncertainty; the importance of what we term conviction narratives; the role of emotions and states of mind in “good” decision-making; phantastic objects and divided states; ways to enhance macroeconomic and finance theories through access to new types of data; and new ways to approach and use artificial Intelligence.

The difficulty lies not so much in developing new ideas as in escaping from old ones.
