Dmitry Kulish will take part in the Technopark Skolkovo’s public online talk, “Don’t let bad news upset you. Stay calm and use your critical thinking!”

We are pleased to announce Technopark Skolkovo’s public online talk, Don’t let bad news upset you. Stay calm and use your critical thinking!, to be held on April 29, 2020.

The swelling panic and its impact on the economy are not aggravated so much by the spread of coronavirus as the avalanche of information in the media and social networks that sweeps away everything in its path. Empty store shelves, toilet paper frenzy, overpriced hygiene products and face masks and rising social tensions are the consequences of too much bad news. There is some good news, too, but everyone seems oblivious to it.

Journalists, a psychologist, an economist and a biologist will talk about why we get easily upset by bad news and ignore good news, how this affects the decision making and the economy during a crisis and what can be done about it.

Moderator: Alexander Chernov, Senior Vice President for External Communications and Advertising, Skolkovo Foundation
