Jim Cramer and Dylan Ratigan sat down for lunch in TheStreet's newsroom.

Following the financial crisis, Ratigan left the world of cable news and he described our present situation as a moment of great global tension.

Ratigan discussed the need to move to transition from a centralized system to one built on distributed networks.

He makes a distinction between decentralized systems and distributed systems:

Distributed systems are large shared networks that create a very efficient movement of resources

Decentralized systems imply complete separate of everyone from each other

He goes on today decentralized systems are necessary for acute disasters, but under normal operating scenarios, distributed systems are preferable.
