More depressingly, countries can be doomed by stupidity. Very concise, but damningly accurate. Stupidity is introduced as an action that has a negative outcome for others whilst also negatively affecting oneself. I was at first sceptical of this definition, but Cipolla answered my doubts in the rest of this tiny book. Some observations…. Stupidity is consistent across social class. We can all take stupid actions, but some people are through repeated actions weighted towards the label stupid. Many people whom we think of as stupid are in fact…
Beware…be warned! This short manual is perfect as a tool to apply and guide you through the murky waters of human stupidity. Be warned, you may analyse some of you own actions and choices and find yourself faced with the possibility that you yourself are not the paragon of non-stupidity you might once have thought.
Nice title. Poor book. It was hard to read. Very academic. I feel this is a wasted opportunity to create a really good book from a great headline. I felt it was a bit of a let down to be honest.
