Talk: Barry Schwartz on the Paradox of Choice

I have been watching videos from the Technology, Education and Design conference (TED) all afternoon. One particularly fascinating talk was Barry Schwartz talking about The Paradox of Choice. I find an almost Buddhist-like understanding of the problem of humanity in the modern world in his talk. But it was the closing words that fascinated me the most: “If you shatter the fishbowl, so that everything is possible, you don’t have freedom, you have paralysis.”
