"The Stuff of Thought"

Steven Pinker, Harvard psychology professor and brilliant writer, never fails to be informative, thought-provoking, and entertaining. This presentation is on his new book, The Stuff of Thought. While not directly related to business, it concerns itself with "language as a window into human nature."

If business is inherently human, i.e., the instinct to trade is an ineradicable part of human nature and not a social construct, then understanding human nature is the first step to successful trading.
