Samo Burja on Why Civilizations Collapse


There are at least 12 identifiable Dark Ages in the recorded history of human civilization. Although we are all fascinated with the idea of the collapse of civilization, have we considered why civilizations actually collapse?

Join Samo Burja, founder of Bismarck Analytics and research fellow at LongNow, to explore the causes behind civilizational collapse and how people like yourself can stay ahead of the curve. You can follow Samo on twitter @samoburja.

“Institutional Failure as Surprise”

Suggested Book: 1777 BC: The Year Civilization Collapsed
