Not all banks, businesses and organisations are the same. The significant diversity that exists in corporate forms and behaviour is neglected by standard approaches to management and economics. This lecture proposes that thinking about complexity and diversity, rather than assuming it away, yields new insights into sources of financial stability, innovation and environmental sustainability.
