Venue information, map and directions
Description (from venue/promoter's website):
According to Rory Sutherland, Vice-Chairman of Ogilvy & Mather and Technology Correspondent for The Spectator, 'recent advances in the social sciences, Darwinian psychology and behavioural economics point to one conclusion: a lot of very clever dead people were right all along.'
For this Benjamin Franklin Symposium, Rory's starting point will be Franklin maxim: 'There are two ways of being happy: We must either diminish our wants or augment our means - either may do... it is for each man to decide for himself and to do that which happens to be easier.'
This event is co-sponsored by the Eccles Centre for American Studies at the British Library.
