      EVENT DETAILS
      The Power of Critical Thinking

      Leland Faust, Former Chairman, CSI Capital Management; Author, A Capitalist's Lament: How Wall Street Is Fleecing You and Ruining AmericaRichard Conn, Managing Partner, Innovate Partners; International Attorney; Russia Expert; Board Member, International Crisis Group; Adviser to Chess Champion Magnus Carlsen; Author, The Earthbound Parent: How (and Why) to Raise Your Little Angels Without Religion Monday Night Philosophy initiates the new decade by analyzing the worlds of Wall Street and investing, international relations, sports, and chess, and focuses on the power and the necessity of critical thinking skills in those worlds. Leland Faust and Richard Conn have been influential in those worlds and share an admiration for the ability of critical thinking to affect complex decision-making on the world stage. But they also share a lament about how rarely rational thinking dominates and how wishful thinking is so prevalent. Hear about Boris Yeltsin's transformation of the Soviet Union, Garry Kasparov's continuing influence on world chess, Wall Street's tricks on and treats for the world economy. Plus acquire a clear idea of why the 2020s don't have to repeat the 1920s, although they might be.
