A Menagerie of Lines: how to decide who is poor? [Audio]
Speaker(s): Professor Angus Deaton | In lectures across three consecutive evenings (9 December,10 December and 11 December) leading development economist Professor Deaton will discuss his work on health and poverty.

Michael Mauboussin, "The Success Equation:Untangling Skill and Luck"
Description: What role, exactly, do skill and luck play in our successes and failures? Some games, like roulette and the lottery, are pure luck. Others, like chess, exist at the other end of the spectrum, relying almost wholly on players' skill. In his provocative book, Michael Mauboussin untangles the intricate strands of skill and luck, defines them, and provides useful frameworks for analyzing their relative contributions. He offers concrete suggestions for how to put these insights to work

Around the turn of the twentieth century, visual artists were looking to their musical counterparts for inspiration. Constrained by the necessity of literal depiction the artists were envious of the freedom music gave its composers. They sought to paint the way musicians composed – tied not to narrative or figurative form but free to explore the sounds, the emotions and indeed the human experience of the notes played. Their exploration in search of such freedom was fuelled by the idea of syne
