Steve Reich Desert Music

(Reposted from Geary blog): In terms of art and music with a behavioural economics theme, this must be up there. The instructions  for the third movement of  famous composer Steve Reich's "The Desert Music" include "Say to them: Man has survived hitherto because he was too ignorant to know how to realize his wishes. Now that he can realize them, he must either change them or perish."
