SKIN IN THE GAME : HIDDEN ASYMMETRIES IN DAILY LIFE

Taleb, Nicholas

Εκδότης Penguin , ISBN 9780141982656

Why should we never listen to people who explain rather than do? Why do companies go bust? How is it that we have more slaves today than in Roman times? Why does imposing democracy on other countries never work?
The answer: too many people running the world don't have skin in the game. In this provocative book, Nassim Nicholas Taleb shows that skin in the game applies to all aspects of our lives. It's about having something to lose and taking a risk. Citizens, lab experimenters, artisans, political activists and hedge fund traders all have skin in the game. Policy wonks, corporate executives, theoreticians, bankers and most journalists don't.

Ο συγγραφέας, Νασίμ Ταλέμπ, είναι δοκιμιογράφος που ασχολείται κατά βάση με τα προβλήματα της αβεβαιότητας και της γνώσης. Ειδικευόμενος στους κινδύνους απρόβλεπτων σπάνιων γεγονότων ("μαύρων κύκνων") εργάστηκε σε ανώτερες θέσεις στη Νέα Υόρκη και στο Λονδίνο πριν ιδρύσει την Empirica LLC, χρηματιστηριακή εταιρεία και εργαστήριο ερευνών για τον κίνδυνο. Επίσης, διδάσκει στο Ινστιτούτο Μαθηματικών Επιστημών Courant του Πανεπιστημίου της Νέας Υόρκης .Nassim Nicholas Taleb has devoted his life to immersing himself in problems of luck, uncertainty, probability and knowledge. Part literary essayist, part empiricist, part no-nonsense mathematical trader, he is currently Dean's Professor in the Science of Uncertainty at the University of Massachusetts at Amherst. His last book, the bestseller Fooled by Randomness, has been published in eighteen languages and was selected by Fortune magazine as one of "The Smartest Books of All Time".
