David Orrell Views Money Through McLuhan’s Lens

26May15

Continuing the theme of money as medium, the following is a review and précis of David Orrell’s 2015 Marshall McLuhan Lecture at transmediale in Berlin, presented by the Marshall McLuhan Salon of the Canadian Embassy in Berlin. Of course you can hear and view his whole lecture by scrolling down to the eighth posting below this one or clicking on http://tinyurl.com/qgxf9j9 . But if you haven’t the time, attention span and patience to sit through an hour long mediated lecture, reading this account might be an alternative.

David Orrell on Money and McLuhan

David Orrell, Ph.D. is a scientist and author of popular science books. He studied mathematics at the University of Alberta, and obtained his Ph.D. from Oxford University on the prediction of nonlinear systems.

Addendum: The whole Western world is in debt, having failed to understand the simple wisdom of Mr. Micawber in “David Copperfield”: Annual income twenty pounds, annual expenditure nineteen nineteen and six, result happiness. Annual income twenty pounds, annual expenditure twenty pounds ought and six, result misery”.
