The real crisis? We stopped being wise!

Barry Schwartz makes a passionate call for practical wisdom as an antidote to a society gone mad with bureaucracy. He argues powerfully that rules often fail us, incentives often backfire, and practical, everyday wisdom will help rebuild our world.Organizations should structure themselves to support rather than suppress practical wisdom.If we are capable to live according to our moral will and moral skill and suppress the moral hazard we are in my humble opinion back on the right track.What we often do when things go wrong, we reach for two tools rules or incentives. Neither rules or incentives are enough to do the job. Practical wisdom will do!In Schwartz's estimation, freedom of choice has made us not freer but more paralyzed, not happier but more dissatisfied.Warm regards,André Biester MFEBoekhorstlaan 127241 SJ LochemT (0573) 257155M (06) 10041420E info@bureaubiester.nlI www.bureaubiester.nlHelping entrepreneurial people with important cross-roads and finance matters in work and life.
