Is the United States ripe for a new populist awakening?
The world is so big,with a huge variety of people and zillions of idea and you prefer to be stuck at the ancient concept of "Nationalism",who did brought nothing but paranoia between each other . Such idea(who refuse to be buried) can be quite dangerous,if its damage on diplomacy becomes big enough to justify a World War 3 .

Are humans irrational? If so, how can we build stronger institutions to compensate for human shortcomings in rationality?
I have to disagree in some extent with him(Dan Ariely) . He see the human brain as an inflexible tool,that can only enjoy its full potencial at the wilderness,while supposing that the ideal "setup" for the brain to survive today is to work like a self-aware computer,thinking fully rationally . But there's a drawback of doing that,which is the problem that,without a emotional motivation,we may never leave the "planning phase" and actually do the shit we want to . "How do we better structure institutions that can compensate for our shortcoming?" First,there are already some tools for improving institutions,but their use has been restricted to companies,as companies are lot more flexible and have a far straighter objective than a big institution,like governments . Second,only investing in education itself isn't enough . There shall be investiment and researchs about how can we "germinate" and improve free thought on all individuals .

Will it ever be "politically" correct to suggest that there may be inate differences between the "hardwiring" of the male and female brain?
For now,it's simply not possible,since,in almost all the cases,men and women have been raised in differents and often,divergent way . The only way to tell if those differences are inate or learned is to pick up some childrens(plenty of them),after they were born,and apply the same method of raising,for all of them,with NO DIFFERENCE between the method that each child is raised(a.k.a. raise them in a bubble) . But,currently,doing such experiment with humans is impossible,as parents don't trust on someone else to raise their childrens in a equal way with other childrens . The same comparison was made at the past,between excellence of black and white people and such excellence turns out to be more related to the enviroment where the person grows than on its skin colour . The same mistake can't be made again,between sexes .

Redefining Individuality
Such idea of society requires much more than science and technology to emerge . You may have the technology and a flawless plan to implement that,but the main factor that will determine its sucess or failure is the composition of the people that will live there . The culture* that the people needs to adopt,in order to fully enjoy its potencial of this society is largely different from the current culture,that is kinda like a "General and Soldier",where the Generals have unquestionable power over Soldiers and where ideas are adopted,without any kind of questioning . A third element of this culture is the praise to Consumerism,which is the consequence of our over-focus on individualism . Along with other (forgotten)elements,changing these three elements of culture is one of the few ways to make such society sucessful . *Culture here is used as a meaning for a education(formal and informal) that the individual received,that shapes how he/she interacts with the Environment around .

Central Banking or Nationalized Banks?
Such decision depends mainly on one simple thing,which is the capacity of the economy to expand(which is something measurable) and how much money will the citizens needs to create new business(which isn't something directly measurable) . Considering these 2 factors.these 2 alternatives(Central banks or Nationalized banks) can be more or less convenient . Examples where one of these options are,for now,better than the other one are: - For developing countries and BRIC(with the exception of China),where the demand of financial resources has been becoming huge(both for large scale investiments and for small scale investiments),it's actually more interesting to incentivate competition between banks,so money becomes cheaper to borrow to consumer . The case of China here is special,as,historicaly,its government has been much more power and responsability for economic growth than others countries(such power and responsability existed way before PC rose to Chinese power in 1947) . - For a country where most of its structure is already lifted,there isn't so much demand for financial resources . With that,Speculation becomes much more dangerous to economy,since it's often,the only method for raising tons of money,differently from a "Developing country" . This is,often,the case of plenty of Western European countries . Possibly,there are more factors that are as much important as the factors already mentioned(infra-structure and capital demand) . In any case,factors are the only thing that can tell which decision is better . And such factors are largely different,depending on which country you are . As I like to say: "Panaceia is Placebo" .
