Six Ideas From Eastern Philosophy

The first 500 people to click this link will get a 2 month free trial of Skillshare: http://skl.sh/tsol4 Eastern philosophy has all the same goals as Western philosophy: it too seeks to make us wiser and more serene. However, the way it goes about its task shows a great deal more variety and imagination: in the East, there are lessons to be learnt in tea ceremonies, in flower arranging, in the repair of vases and in the ritual contemplation of rivers. An introduction to six of the most fascinating concepts of Eastern philosophy.

How to Make a Country Rich

If you were setting out to make a country rich, what kind of mindsets and ideas would be most likely to achieve your goals? We invent a country, Richland, and try to imagine the psychology of its inhabitants.

Rather than ask this of any specific country, let’s imagine designing a country from scratch. How could you make it as rich as possible? Suppose the brief was to design ‘Richland’: an ideal wealth-creating society. What would be the chief characteristics you’d need to build into this society? What would a nation look like that was ideally suited to success in modern capitalism?...” You can read more on this and other topics on our blog TheBookofLife.org at this link: https://goo.gl/StpBHa MORE SCHOOL OF LIFE Our website has classes, articles and products to help you think and grow: https://goo.gl/oeof2J Watch more films on CAPITALISM in our playlist: http://bit.ly/TSOLcapitalism Do you speak a different language to English?

What if Africa Was Never Colonized?

In the late 19th century, Europe's imperial powers split up an entire continent and the ramifications can still be seen today. What if Europe never colonized Africa?

But it’s demographic problems will be a significant challenge on the way there. This includes a paid sponsored promotion which had no part in the writing, editing, or production of the rest of the video. Music by Epidemic Sound: http://epidemicsound.com Demographic explanations are inspired in part by several chapters of “The Accidental Superpower” by Peter Zeihan. It’s a great book and although this video is only a small slice (and not the main argument), it’s very interesting and worth reading. He’s the source of a couple specific phrasings like “countries can’t manufacture 18 year olds” which I think help explain the issue well.

The reason why some countries are rich and others poor depends on many things, including the quality of their institutions, the culture they have, the natural resources they find and what latitude they're on. For gifts and more from The School of Life, visit our online shop: https://goo.gl/dXpOl4
