Summary Description

In our summary of The Wisdom of Crowds by James Surowiecki, we‘ll explore a deceptively simple idea that has profound consequences: Large groups of people are smarter than an elite few, no matter how brilliant those few are. Groups are better at solving problems, fostering innovation, making wise decisions, and even predicting the future.

This seemingly counterintuitive notion has endless and major ramifications for how businesses operate, how knowledge is advanced, how economies should be organized, and how we live our daily lives. Through compelling examples, we‘ll explore how this principle operates in the real world.
