This was one of my “wake the f*#$-up” videos.  In it, Albert Bartlett – Professor Emeritus of Physics at The University of Colorado @ Boulder, explains why he believes that “the greatest shortcoming of the human race is our inability to understand the exponential function.” This has become a very famous lecture over the years  – Professor Bartlett has given it over 1600 times since 1969.  Definitely worthy of your attention.
