Business & Economics Podcasts >

To paraphrase the late, great HL Mencken, "For every complex problem there is a train-of-thought this is logical, efficient, and completely misguided." Analytical thinking is a subconscious Western philosophy that often gets us into trickiest of pickles leading to a kind of logical insanity. But if we are mindful of this subconcious philosophy of top-down Deductive-Analytical thinking then we can better make sense of the world around us allowing us to take more control of our lives and careers. On that note, the Cradle of Analytics podcast hopes to start a new type of business conversation.
