Sicurezza e Pensiero strategico nell’era di Davide contro Golia (di Giovanni Calabresi)

Uno dei grandi assenti in sede di decision making è spesso proprio quello che dovrebbe essere l’ospite d’onore, se non addirittura il padrone di casa, in tutti i luoghi in cui si decidono le sorti di una qualsiasi organizzazione o gruppo umano: il pensiero strategico.

Lo sguardo che abbiamo sulla Cina è, molto spesso, provinciale.

Parto dalla democrazia perché, negli ultimi decenni, […]
