If we haven’t been able to solve some of the world’s big problems, such as climate change or combating terrorism, maybe it’s because we are asking the wrong questions. In a provocative new book, Eric Knight challenges the conventional wisdom on the big subjects and suggests how we get change happening. He talks to The Sydney Morning Herald's Opinion Editor Joel Gibson.
