Human capital & the age of change: Constantin Gurdgiev at TEDxDublin

Constantin Gurdgiev is a lecturer in Finance with Trinity College, Dublin, former editor of Business and Finance Magazine, and a regular contributor to Tonight With Vincent Browne on TV3. Constantin feels that global economy is shifting toward more human capital-intensive growth, driven by changing nature of entrepreneurship, creativity, and altering the relationship between risk taking, risk management and returns to labour. In this age of what he calls Human Capital, existent systems of political power distribution, taxation and public services will undergo a revolutionary transformation, presenting a major challenge to the advanced economies and their social democracies.

In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
