Risk: The Human Adventure

Richard D North, keynote speaker at the Summit for the Future Opening Event [May 3, 2006] wrote in his book "Risk: The Human Adventure" about the merits of risk-taking and the challenge to the Anxiety Industry.

"The word 'risk' derives from the early Italian 'risicare', which means 'to dare'. In this sense, risk is a choice rather than a fate" - Peter L Bernstein [Bernstein, 1996] Richard: "Risk is a lovely subject. But it is a difficult one. Still, we mustn't risk being downhearted. We must keep our nerve. We need to see who we can trust in such a tricky matter. We need to know what evidence about these matters we can believe."
