What my research has shown me is that experts tend on the whole to form very rigid camps; that within these camps, a dominant perspective emerges that often silences opposition; that experts move with the prevailing winds, often hero-worshipping their own gurus.  (Noreena Hertz Quotes) We need to know how we are feeling. Mindfully acknowledging our feelings serves as an ‘emotional thermostat’ that recalibrates our decision making. It’s not that we can’t be anxious, it’s that we need to acknowledge to ourselves that we are.  (Noreena Hertz Quotes) From solar to electric cars, from geothermal to reconfiguring the grid, the scale of investment needed in green technologies in order to meet whatever agreements on emissions reductions are finally agreed will be immense.  (Noreena Hertz Quotes) I grew up in a highly political home. My mother was the co-chair of the 300 Group, an organisation whose aim was to get more women MPs into parliament, and she herself stood in the 1987 election, the year before she died.  (Noreena Hertz Quotes) The World Trade Organization is an organization that defends trade interests. I think the problem is less that they exist. The problem is that internationally we’ve only got an organization that protects trade interests. Surely we need some kind of counterweight to protect human rights and the environment, too.  (Noreena Hertz Quotes) As an economist specializing in the global economy, international trade and debt, I have spent most of my career helping others make big decisions - prime ministers, presidents and chief executives - and so I’m all too aware of the risks and dangers of poor choices in the public as well as the private sphere.  (Noreena Hertz Quotes) Language is too complex for a computer to understand. It’s not going to be able to make sense of what people are saying en masse. We need a new type of discipline that puts together computer scientists and social scientists, who can add context to the situation.  (Noreena Hertz Quotes) All company bosses want a policy on corporate social responsibility. The positive effect is hard to quantify, but the negative consequences of a disaster are enormous.  (Noreena Hertz Quotes) With clothing being designed that allows you to be hugged virtually, video conferencing becoming ever sharper, and our social and romantic lives increasingly taking place online, the gap between the physical and the virtual is getting ever smaller.  (Noreena Hertz Quotes) Countries that need monies so that they can provide health care and education and shelter to their people shouldn’t have to repay debts that we knowingly lent to bad regimes long since gone; and all illegitimate debts - debts lent to these terrible dictators like Saddam Hussein, like Suharto, like Marcos - must also be canceled.  (Noreena Hertz Quotes) The challenge for corporations, if offices were to become obsolete, is twofold. How will they be able to retain their distinct cultures? And how will they be able to ensure that all employees, wherever they work from, share a united identity and vision?  (Noreena Hertz Quotes) It is a world of extremes, which can be characterised most clearly in terms of exclusion. That means political exclusion, whereby the rights of citizens are marginalised by the interests of big business: George W Bush’s environmental policy, for example, is clearly formulated in the interests of U.S. energy companies.  (Noreena Hertz Quotes) Most philanthropists would still rather donate to elite schools, concert halls or religious groups than help the poor or sick.  (Noreena Hertz Quotes) With consumers having ever more choice, corporations must invest more and more in courting public opinion.  (Noreena Hertz Quotes) I really believe in a globalist agenda, but globalization isn’t just allowing companies to trade freely all over the world. It’s about what types of rights and responsibilities come with that.  (Noreena Hertz Quotes) Terrorism and trade cannot be the only issues on which the world unites. We must commit ourselves to a global coalition to deal with exclusion, too.  (Noreena Hertz Quotes) Governments have been ceding power to big multinational corporations in the market. We see the manifest in a variety of ways. Where governments are giving up power to big international institutions like the World Trade Organization or NAFTA, which are disabling governments’ ability to protect the rights of their own people.  (Noreena Hertz Quotes) It’s not that I am against the rich giving money to charities. I’m all for it, and we should think of ways of encouraging more of it. But I also believe that states, rather than individuals, are ultimately a better bet for delivering a fair and just world and reconciling differing interests.  (Noreena Hertz Quotes) Our guts can really mislead us. Sometimes, what we think of as our gut is something else, like an outside influence. If you’re going to buy an apartment and it smells of freshly baked bread, you’re more likely to want to buy it.  (Noreena Hertz Quotes) We are all socialists now, it seems. John McCain, David Cameron and Gordon Brown attack bankers’ irresponsible behaviour and salaries, and call for state intervention in the financial markets. But these calls will not get them elected or re-elected if they are addressed only to the banking sector.  (Noreena Hertz Quotes) We live increasingly in a world of haves and have-nots, of gated communities next to ghettos, of extreme poverty and unbelievable riches. Some enjoy rights that are completely denied to others. Relative inequalities are exploding, and the world’s poorest, despite all the advances of globalisation, may even be getting poorer.  (Noreena Hertz Quotes) When it comes to getting more women into parliament, politicians have at least started to take active measures. The British Labour Party introduced all-female shortlists in 1997.  (Noreena Hertz Quotes) Philanthropists today want input into how their monies are being deployed. The big question is, can governments use this insight to sell the rich the idea of paying more tax rather than spend more on charitable giving?  (Noreena Hertz Quotes) When Apple introduced its game-changing iPhone in 2007, Nokia was caught sleeping on the job. Although it had actually developed an iPhone-style device - complete with a color touchscreen, maps, online shopping, the lot - some seven years earlier. Astonishingly, it never released the product  (Noreena Hertz Quotes) I try to take a weekly digital Sabbath, batch my emails so I deal with them a few times a day rather than constantly, and increasingly give myself permission to ignore unsolicited communiques. I try, too, to give others more slack. The respond-now culture is a two-way street. I’m trying to be more mindful of that  (Noreena Hertz Quotes) We must embrace a new agenda based on inclusiveness; a commitment to reconnecting the social and the economic; a relinking of the latter to a plausible redistributive system; and a determination to ensure that everyone has access to justice. All these things are within our reach  (Noreena Hertz Quotes) I’ve become increasingly fascinated with social media to improve on traditional ways of preparing for and predicting the future  (Noreena Hertz Quotes) Having women on boards is good for women, good for the economy and good for society. A win-win-win outcome: how rare  (Noreena Hertz Quotes) My parents were entrepreneurs. I grew up believing in the power of innovation  (Noreena Hertz Quotes) At the end of the day, philanthropy can only ever be an adjunct to what governments provide. And government coffers need to be replenished  (Noreena Hertz Quotes)
