What is Big Think?  

We are Big Idea Hunters…

We live in a time of information abundance, which far too many of us see as information overload. With the sum total of human knowledge, past and present, at our fingertips, we’re faced with a crisis of attention: which ideas should we engage with, and why? Big Think is an evolving roadmap to the best thinking on the planet — the ideas that can help you think flexibly and act decisively in a multivariate world.

A word about Big Ideas and Themes — The architecture of Big Think

Big ideas are lenses for envisioning the future. Every article and video on bigthink.com and on our learning platforms is based on an emerging “big idea” that is significant, widely relevant, and actionable. We’re sifting the noise for the questions and insights that have the power to change all of our lives, for decades to come. For example, reverse-engineering is a big idea in that the concept is increasingly useful across multiple disciplines, from education to nanotechnology.

Themes are the seven broad umbrellas under which we organize the hundreds of big ideas that populate Big Think. They include New World Order, Earth and Beyond, 21st Century Living, Going Mental, Extreme Biology, Power and Influence, and Inventing the Future.

MSNBC's Dylan Ratigan Answers Your Questions – Live on Big Think!

March 6, 2012, 2:25 PM
Ratigan

Update: This interview has been rescheduled for April. You may still submit your questions below!

Dylan Ratigan, the host of MSNBC's highest rated non-primetime show, will be here in our studio this Wednesday to talk about his journalism career and his new book, Greedy Bastards: How We Can Stop Corporate Communists, Banksters, and Other Vampires from Sucking America Dry. We want to know--what would you ask him? 

About the book:

Dylan Ratigan is mad as hell. Infuriated by government corruption and corporate communism, incensed by banksters shaking down taxpayers, and despairing of an ailing health care system, an age-old dependency on foreign oil, and a failing educational system, Ratigan sees an America that has allowed itself to be swindled and robbed. In this book, his first, he rips the lid off our deeply crooked system—and offers a way out. 

This country, now more than ever, needs passionate debate and smart policy, a brazen willingness to scrap what doesn’t work, and the entrepreneurial spirit.

What would you like to ask Dylan about the 2008 bailout, the financial industry, his solutions for government corruption and the ailing economy, or his work on the Dylan Ratigan Show? He'll answer a few good questions live on Big Think this April 2012. 

Submit your questions by posting them in the comments section below, writing them on our Facebook page, or emailing megan@bigthink.com, then tune in at noon to watch.
