TED talks: who controls the world? – James B Glattfelder


After the publication of our Guide to Ownership 2013 today, it seems only right that in this week’s featured TED talk, James B Glattfelder talks about how the natural environment’s interconnected systems need to be transferred to the field of economics.

In the video below, Glattfelder, a Swiss physicist, says, “As ownership is related to control, looking at ownership networks can actually give you answers to questions like, ‘Who are the key players?’, ‘How are they organised?’, ‘Are they isolated?’, ‘Are they interconnected?’ and ‘What is the overall distribution of control?’

In other words, ‘Who controls the world?’
