TEDTalk: Geoffrey West on The Surprising Math of Cities and Corporations

Back home after a week of travel! Anyway, here's a good TEDTalk to check out:

"Physicist Geoffrey West has found that simple, mathematical laws govern the properties of cities -- that wealth, crime rate, walking speed and many other aspects of a city can be deduced from a single number: the city's population. In this mind-bending talk from TEDGlobal he shows how it works and how similar laws hold for organisms and corporations."
