This is the overview page for area Society.

Everything that humans do collectively as a "society" goes in here. This involves topics in economics, journalism, business etc. It also includes my general rants and observations.

I'm particularly interested in collecting Real Life Decision Making Systems. This is a humbling excercise. Some decisions are reversible. Irreversible decisions with large ripple effects may turn out to be deadly. We've already seen this with COVID-19 and government responses, circa 2020. We cannot do without uncertainty quantification and this is a page to remind myself of that.
