David K.A. Mordecai presented at Santa Fe Institute’s (SFI) Systemic Risk Initiative. The event explored the role of systemic risk in financial markets. The gathering drew a dozen experts from the financial sector and another dozen scientists, and meeting participants sought to explore the extent to which tools and principles of complexity science might allow for a richer understanding of systemic risk in financial markets and the economy.
Organizers of the Systemic Risk Initiative included the following individuals:-
- Risk Economics Co-founder and Compass Lexecon Senior Advisor David K.A. Mordecai,
- Nobel Laureate Kenneth Arrow (Stanford University, Economics),

The event was part of the Santa Fe Institute’s Business Network meetings, where Network members and SFI scientists explore fundamental principles that help make sense of the complexities faced by all types of organization. The event was held on October 15th, 2009 and hosted by Credit Suisse, New York. The Santa Fe Institute is is at the forefront of the scientific understanding of complex systems at all scales, from the microscopic to the cosmic. By jointly exploring a variety of complex systems from different perspectives, Network members gain new understanding that may enable them to engage their own organization and address challenges in a wholly unique and revolutionary manner.
