Thought you might be interested Thursday: The Gray Rhino: How to Recognize and Act on the Obvious Dangers We Ignore

What IS a gray rhino and why do we care even if we know what it is?   Author Michele Wucker explains:
A "gray rhino" is a highly probable, high impact yet neglected threat: kin to both the elephant in the room and the improbable and unforeseeable black swan. Gray rhinos are not random surprises, but occur after a series of warnings and visible evidence. The bursting of the housing bubble in 2008, the devastating aftermath of Hurricane Katrina and other natural disasters, the new digital technologies that upended the media world, the fall of the Soviet Union…all were evident well in advance.

Learn more about the book, the challenges, and solutions by watching the C-SPAN program Book Discussion on The Gray Rhino which aired April 13, 2016.
