"If probabilities, trends and scientific models could be appreciated by the masses, we'd be living in a different world."
I'd like to think I had a hand in begetting this deplorable situation. After all, the small group of benighted MBAs I instructed in probabilities, trends, models, game theory, and/or decision making were obviously sufficiently addled that they clearly brought about the financial crisis.
On the other hand, caeci caecos ducentes, and how could I be held responsible for just being a cog in the machine?
I should have dispensed with the numbers I guess and stirred in more appeals to emotion.
