Do you ever feel that sticking to the rules can sometimes get in the way of what you think is the ‘right thing’ to do in a situation? Of course rules are important part of a functioning society – from playing sport, to driving on our roads and performing our jobs – they pull us together and give us clear understandings of what to expect in our everyday lives. But is there a danger in relying too heavily on rules? Barry Schwartz makes a passionate call for “practical wisdom” as an antidote to a society gone mad with bureaucracy. He argues powerfully that rules often fail us, incentives often backfire, and practical, everyday wisdom will help rebuild our world.
