Episode 26: Commentary on Generational Dynamics


Is John Xenakis right? Does history repeat itself, after a fashion, in four-generation cycles, climaxing in a series of Crisis Wars every 60-80 years?

Does Generational Dynamics pass the average person's tests for sensibility, simplicity, complexity, confidence, mathematical rigor, and accuracy?

How does Generational Dynamics stack up against better known theories of economics and society?

How is Generational Dynamics like the great science fiction author Issac Asimov's short story, "Nightfall" (I did this one from pure memory folks--missed a few details, but what a great story by Asimov, and how eerily does it fit GD? Very!

Why is everyone talking about the the coming crash, even famed economist-slash-dunderhead (ah, but I am being redundant) Paul (Wolfman) Krugman?
