This book is a compilation of entries from the blog entitled Scientific Sense, written and maintained by me, Gill Eapen, from 2008 to 2012. They fall in the general areas of Science, Economics and Policy. These writings contain a set of ideas, opinions and speculation based on my own beliefs. I am an agnostic, have no political affiliations and support a global community. I challenge the status quo in every field and do not accept anything as a given. I evoke the history of humans, a stagnant present and speculate on the necessary direction for future progress. I hope my readers, from over 140 countries, will take these views as stepping-stones to propel new thoughts and debates. In analyzing contemporary events, I use the framework laid out from my previous two books – Decision Options and Flexibility. These books describe how to innovate and lead in complex organizations and how conventional tools and methodologies have been rendered ineffective. My goal is to bring these ideas to a wider audience and foster debate in which participants analyze each other’s viewpoints with indomitable logic. Engage, challenge, think, influence, act and above all, enjoy.
