One of the most challenging things I’ve done lately was to prepare, memorize, and deliver a TEDx talk at Yale earlier this month. Called “Trust, Lies and Bernie Madoff,” it explores the paradox of trust. Trust is both a nourishing, enriching part of life and an essential element of a healthy economy and a healthy society. BUT it is also “the only weapon a con man needs to destroy his victims’ lives.” How should we navigate the dual nature of trust when we handle our money? See my suggestions in the video above.
