Smarter than the CIA?

This is fascinating to me. NPR ran a story today about a program called The Good Judgment Project. Briefly, random citizens have made better national security decisions than the CIA.

The collective can make better decisions than an individual. I love that in an effort to prove the ‘crowd’ is stupid, the exact opposite was found. There’s mathematically proven truth in every overused, cliche teamwork quote.

Collective wisdom wins. Lone rangers fall behind.
