HearSay Classic: Collapse - How Societies Choose to Fail or Succeed
The disturbing headlines seem to never cease: dwindling supplies of fossil fuels, global warming, the disappearance of species. Has modern society unwittingly created its own demise? In his book, Collapse: How Societies Choose to Fail or Succeed, Pulitzer-Prize winning author Jared Diamond focuses on the history of societies that have either squandered or savored their natural and human resources, and how these different choices effected their survival. We talk with Diamond about what we can learn from the past on today's HearSay.
