Healy, Ann Marie
All systems break down. Some bounce back, others do not. This is a book about why. Covering business, economic, geographic and social systems, Zolli uncovers a wealth of absorbing examples--from the link between US oil prices and the recent 'tortilla riots' in Mexico to what was really happening when the U.S. government decided not to bail out Lehman Bros.
Includes bibliographical references (p. -305) and index.
Robust-yet-fragile -- Sense, scale, swarm -- Power of clusters -- Resilient mind -- Cooperation when it counts -- Cognitive diversity -- Communities that bounce back -- Translational leader -- Bringing resilience home.
