The Paradox of Choice – Why More Is Less

The Paradox of Choice – Why More Is Less.

Really nice talk by Barry Schwartz about the paradox of choices available in nowadays societies.

Just a side note in case you actually watch the talk: you do not get to watch the slides with “copyrighted” cartoons, which really penalize the experience and the full understanding of the talk… and that’s why I think that a fair use of copyrighted material is an important discussion. Knowledge and Arts should be Universal Human Heritage assets that people should be free to access for the good of humanity (and yes, some way, other than the current copyright restrictions approaches, must the proposed to compensate authors so they can keep doing what they do).
