FSN In Depth: Joseph A. Tainter PhD, The Collapse of Complex Societies FINANCIAL SENSE

With: James J Puplava CFP

Political disintegration is a persistent feature of world history. The
Collapse of Complex Societies, though written by an archaeologist, will
therefore strike a chord throughout the social sciences. Any explanation of
societal collapse carries lessons not just for the study of ancient societies,
but for the members of all such societies in both the present and future. Dr.
Tainter describes nearly two dozen cases of collapse and reviews more than 2000
years of explanations. He then develops a new and far-reaching theory that
accounts for collapse among diverse kinds of societies, evaluating his model and
clarifying the processes of disintegration by detailed studies of the Roman,
Mayan and Chacoan collapses.
