The Science and Art of Taking a Risk

The economic problems of recent years came about, in part, because we didn’t understand the risks we, as a society, were collectively taking. This presentation and discussion will explore what it means to take individual and societal risks, how to measure those risks, and how economics, engineering and psychology envision risk differently.

Speaker: Dr. Eduardo Zambrano, Economics Department, Orfalea School of Business.
