Les décisions absurdes

Livre éclairant que celui de Christian Morel : Les Décisions absurdes. Au travers d'un ensemble d'anecdotes tragi-comiques, il démontre les mécanismes par lesquels un groupe humain peut foncer dans le mur. L'accident de Challenger a été causé par des éléments connus de l'ensemble des décideurs avant le lancement. Deux pétroliers se foncent l'un sur l'autre alors qu'ils se voient au radar bien longtemps à l'avance et qu'ils ont toute liberté de manoeuvre. Toutes ces décisions ne nous semblent absurdes que par notre incompréhension de certains mécanismes fondamentaux de communication.

Un exemple : « .../ la chute du Boeing 737 d'Air Florida dans le Potomac le 13 janvier 1982, à Washington, au moment du décollage. Lors de la check-list, les pilotes avaient omis d'enclencher le mécanisme de dégivrage alors qu'il neigeait et gelait (...) Lorsque le pilote a interrogé "dégivrage?" dans la check-list, le commandant a répondu "off!" et ils n'en ont plus reparlé. » Cinq personnes survécurent parmi les soixante-dix-neuf personnes à bord. Absurde?

  1. In today’s rocky economic climate, most households are cutting back wherever they can. I too faced the problem and wated to cut down on
    cable tv, I tried P2P, but then not impressed with it. I started collecting ways to watch my favorite tv shows online.

  2. China and Russia put the blame on some screwed up experiments of US for the earthquake that happened in Haiti.
    Chinese and Russian Military scientists, these reports say, are concurring with Canadian researcher, and former Asia-Pacific Bureau Chief of Forbes Magazine, Benjamin Fulford, who in a very disturbing video released from his Japanese offices to the American public, details how the United States attacked China by the firing of a 90 Million Volt Shockwave from the Americans High Frequency Active Auroral Research Program (HAARP) facilities in Alaska
    If we can recollect a previous news when US blamed Russia for the earthquake in Georgio. What do you guys think? Is it really possible to create an earthquake by humans?
    I came across this article about Haiti Earthquake in some blog it seems very interesting, but conspiracy theories have always been there.
