ARE YOU A GAMBLER?
Peter de Jager
Do we gamble? There’s only one way to answer that question. Yes. All the time. From the moment we wake up in the morning, until we wake up the next morning. We gamble all the time.
Gambling isn’t just “games” or “recreation.” When we get in a car, or plane, we’re gambling all will go well, and that we’ll arrive safe. When we take out a mortgage, the “fixed” or “variable” decision is firmly ensconced in the world of risk management and, hence, in the world of gambling. How good are we at this? How well do we understand risk management?
