IT IS CALLED CLARITY IN A MESSY WORLD. BOCCONI SCHOLARS AND RESEARCHERS HELP LISTENERS UNRAVEL THE COMPLEXITIES OF THE POSTCOVID WORLD BY EXPLAINING THE FINDINGS OF THEIR WORK
Academic research can help us understand the complexity of the world. With this spirit in mind, Bocconi University has created a new tool for disseminating knowledge produced by its scholars and researchers.
It’s a new podcast series called "Clarity in a messy world". The series, whose episodes are available on five different platforms (Apple Podcasts
, Google Podcasts
), joins existing digital channels for disseminating knowledge made in Bocconi: the Bocconi Knowledge
and the online magazine online viaSarfatti25
Clarity in a Messy World is presented by journalist, media coach and actor David Wayne Callahan. The aim is to explore the root causes of the most controversial and impactful issues of our time through interviews with experts who share their knowledge and insights based on solid research findings.
In the first three episodes of the series, Nicola Gennaioli
guides us in understanding financial crises through the prism of behavioral economics, Catherine De Vries
analyzes the affirmation of populist parties around the world and the effects of the pandemic on their rise; Dirk Hovy
helps us understand the world of algorithms, including the risks associated with their use. In future episodes, other topics related to Bocconi's research in the social sciences will be discussed: economics, management, law, political science, and data science.
"In times of increased confusion and even disinformation it is paramount to have clear and research-based evidence from leading academic scholars," explains Bocconi Dean for Research Jérôme Adda
: “The role of a research-oriented university like Bocconi is not only to produce innovative research but also to disseminate it broadly.”
