"Coming from a scientific, analytical background and doing a physics degree I understand the world from a logical perspective. But the more I studied and learnt about the world the more I realised that the simplified models that science uses to break the world down into comprehendible pieces have their limitations. A reductionist approach is often unreliable, and sometimes worst than useless, when working with highly interrelated systems such as organisms, ecosystems, economies and organisations." [1]

From Mon 22nd - Fri 26th July 2013 he is facilitating a course titled "The Economics of Happiness - Localisation" being run by Helena Norberg-Hodge. [2]
