Understanding Exponential Growth | Dr. Albert Bartlett
“The greatest shortcoming of the human race is our inability to understand the exponential function.” – Dr. Albert Bartlett
Perhaps not the greatest shortcoming, but it’s pretty close. It’s a real shame that many leaders of countries don’t understand exponential growth and therefore unable to educate their citizens about the dangers of allowing COVID-19 to spread.
Albert Allen Bartlett was an emeritus professor of physics at the University of Colorado at Boulder, USA. As of July 2001 Professor Bartlett had lectured over 1,742 times since September, 1969 on Arithmetic, Population, and Energy. Wikipedia
