Summary
  • Marketing methods intended to increase customer retention that drives clients to competitors. Efforts to prevent riots that cause them to happen. Countries that acquire weapons to increase their security but actually, heighten their risk. Unintended consequences often occur, but there are ways to prevent themùif you understand the social mechanisms at play
  • Historian and author Daniel Boorstin noted, "The unintended consequences of man's enterprises have and will always be more potent, more widespread, and more influential than those he intended." Today, a Google web search for "unintended consequences" summons nearly two million pages citing the unexpected impacts of government policies, new technologies, management decisions, and the actions of individuals. Unfortunate unintended consequences are becoming increasingly problematic as our world becomes globally and electronically interconnected, causing the results of our decisions to resonate across the globe. In Best Laid Plans, the author examines how any action can have cascading impacts across time, place, and sector, explaining the eight social mechanisms of unintended consequences that complicate matters and often defeat best laid plans. --Book Jacket
