Large Groups and Helping Hands
How we interact in large groups is fascinating for so many reasons. It’s important for governments, businesses and of course scientists. If anything showed us its importance, it’s COVID19 and how quick it has spread. But what about the sociological side of things? How do our individual interactions impact and help shape other peoples interactions in society? Dr Milena Tsvetkova of the London School of Economics explains in this episode!
Inequality in the Midst of a Pandemic
Milena shared some of her work that she has been doing on inequality in social groups. We took these findings from computational social science and tried to apply them to today. Given the response to COVID19, how is inequality affected by bailing out corporations? What if there is an alternative?
What Else We Discussed – Empathy and Corporate Social Responsibility
One of the outcomes of the society we have become accustomed to prior to COVID19 is selfishness. As Milena suggests, “we’ve become egoistical”, complaining about the inability to leave the house. However, is this unprecedented period in time about to change our attitudes? In this light, Milena also gives her opinion on CSR.
