24,627.  The greater the risk the greater the profit: 62nd Rule.  (Star Trek & Risk)  Star Trek: Deep Space Nine: Rules of Acquisition s2e7, Quark to female

 

 

41,965.  It’s very easy to generate performance by taking on more risk.  And so what you need to do is compensate for risk-adjusted performance and that’s where all the bodies are buried.  (Banksters & Risk)  Raghuram Rajan

 

 

42,012.  New York 2010 Jon Corzine: M F Global.  Its business was brokerage ... Risk: MF Global would start taking risks itself in the market.  (Banksters & Risk & Money)  Bankers II: Risking It All, BBC 2013

    

42,016.  Nothing on this scale had been predicted by Value at Risk.  Nearly three trillion dollars was lost.  (Banksters & Finance & Economics & Business & Risk & Money)  ibid.

 

 

111,602.  In today’s world real power lies in the hands of an elite group of anonymous men in open-plan offices.  The men who control the world’s bond market … Bonds are the magical link between the world of high finance and the world of political power.  (Business & Money & Finance & Economics & Risk & Stocks & Wall Street)  Niall Ferguson, The Ascent of Money e2: Human Bondage  

 

111,603.  After the rise of banks the birth of the bond market was the next big revolution in the history of finance.  It created a whole new way for governments to borrow money.  (Business & Money & Finance & Economics & Risk & Stocks & Wall Street)  ibid.

 

111,604.  There are bonds out there worth around $85,000,000,000, 000.  (Business & Money & Finance & Economics & Risk & Stocks & Wall Street)  ibid.

 

111,605.  Between around 1810 and 1836 the five sons of Meyer Amschel Rothschild rose from the obscurity of the Frankfurt ghetto to attain a position of unequalled power in international finance.  (Business & Money & Finance & Economics & Risk & Stocks & Banksters & Wall Street)  ibid.

 

111,606.  The South’s idea was to use cotton as calateral to back its bonds.  (Business & Money & Finance & Economics & Risk & Stocks & South & Wall Street)  ibid.

42,226.  In our time we’ve witnessed the zenith of global finance.  In 2006 the world’s total economic output was worth around $47,000,000,000,000.  The total value of stock and bond markets was roughly $119,000,000,000,000.  More than twice the size.  And the amount outstanding of the strange new financial life-form known as derivatives was $473,000,000,000,000.  Ten times larger ... This is the story of financial globalisation.  (Business & Money & Finance & Economics & Stocks & Currency & Risk & Investment & Globalisation & Federal Reserve & Banksters & Borrow & Saving & Debt & Wall Street)  Professor Niall Ferguson, Ascent of Money e6: Chimerica, 2010

 

42,227.  According to [George] Soros’s Theory of Reflexivity, financial markets can’t possibly be perfectly efficient much less rational ... His biggest coups came from being right about losers not winners.  And the greatest of these was among the most momentous speculative hits in all of financial history.  On September 16th 1992 with the British £ in big trouble I watched as Soros put out a contract on the Bank of England ... So sure was he that the £ would drop that he bet ten billion dollars.  (Business & Money & Finance & Economics & Stocks & Currency & Risk & Investment & Globalisation & Federal Reserve & Banksters & Borrow & Saving & Debt & Wall Street)  ibid.

 

42,228.  The Nobel Prize in Economics.  It seemed as if Intellect had triumphed over Intuition.  As if rocket science had taken over from risk-taking.  Equipped with their magical black box, the partners in LTCM seemed poised to make money far beyond the wildest imaginings of even George Soros.  And then in the summer of 1998 when every self-respecting hedge-fund manager should have been playing with his yacht something happened that threatened to blow the lid right off the Nobel Prize winner’s black box: Reality started to misbehave ... On Monday August 17th 1998 a giant asteroid smashed into Planet Finance.  (Business & Money & Finance & Economics & Stocks & Currency & Risk & Investment & Globalisation & Federal Reserve & Banksters & Borrow & Saving & Debt & Wall Street)  ibid.  

 

41,510.  The only chance of survival was to find a White Knight to rescue them.  And the most powerful Knight in town was none other than George Soros.  It was the ultimate humiliation: the Quants from Planet Finance begging for a bail-out from the Prophet of Irrational Unquantifiable Reflexivity ... Fear that Long Terms failure could trigger a general financial meltdown, the New York Federal Reserve hastily brokered a multi-billion-dollar bailout by fourteen Wall Street banks.  (Business & Money & Finance & Economics & Stocks & Currency & Risk & Investment & Globalisation & Federal Reserve & Banksters & Borrow & Saving & Debt & Wall Street)  ibid.

 

41,506.  The ascent of money has seldom been smooth.  Time and again it’s been punctuated by big painful crises.  (Business & Money & Finance & Economics & Stocks & Currency & Risk & Investment & Globalisation & Federal Reserve & Banksters & Borrow & Saving & Debt & Wall Street)  ibid.

 

41,507.  American borrowers have come to rely on Chinese savers, a symbiotic relationship between China and America that I call Chimerica.  (Business & Money & Finance & Economics & Stocks & Currency & Risk & Investment & Globalisation & Federal Reserve & Banksters & Borrow & Saving & Debt & Wall Street)  ibid.

 

36,116.  So enormous have Chinese saving become in recent years they’ve enabled globalisation to do the most almighty U-turn.  Previously, it was the rich English speakers who leant money to the poor Asian periphery.  But now it’s the Chinese who are lending money to the Americans.  Welcome to the strange new hybrid country of China and America – I call it Chimerica.  (Business & Money & Finance & Economics & Stocks & Currency & Risk & Investment & Globalisation & Federal Reserve & Banksters & Borrow & Saving & Debt & Wall Street)  ibid.

 

41,508.  The People’s republic of China has become banker to the United States of America.  (Business & Money & Finance & Economics & Stocks & Currency & Risk & Investment & Globalisation & Federal Reserve & Banksters & Borrow & Saving & Debt & Wall Street)  ibid.

 

42,229.  What starts with competition for Olympic medals could end in a battle over dollars if the Chinese decide one day to cut off their credit line to the American empire.  Maybe as it name suggests Chimerica is nothing more than a chimera ... The really big crises come just seldom enough to be beyond the living memory of the people who run today’s companies, banks and funds.  (Business & Money & Finance & Economics & Stocks & Currency & Risk & Investment & Globalisation & Federal Reserve & Banksters & Borrow & Saving & Debt & Wall Street)  ibid.

 

41,509.  The Ascent of Money has been one of the key factors in human progress, an extraordinary story of innovation, intermediation and integration that has done as much as anything to help people escape from the drudgery of subsistence agriculture.  And yet Planet Finance can never quite escape from the gravitational force of Planet Earth.  Because the Quants can never take full account of the human factor – our tendency to underestimate the probability of black swans.  Our propensity to veer from euphoria to despondency.  Our chronic inability to learn from History.  (Business & Money & Finance & Economics & Stocks & Currency & Risk & Investment & Globalisation & Federal Reserve & Banksters & Borrow & Saving & Debt & Wall Street)  ibid.

 

 

 

86,844.  The biggest risk is not taking any risk ... In a world that's changing really quickly, the only strategy that is guaranteed to fail is not taking risks.  Mark Zuckerber

 

 

86,845.  Only those who will risk going too far can possibly find out how far one can go.  T S Eliot

 

 

86,846.  Risk comes from not knowing what you’re doing.  Warren Buffett

 

 

53,829.  So we shall let the reader answer this question for himself: who is the happier man, he who has braved the storm of life and lived or he who has stayed securely on shore and merely existed?  (Happiness & Risk)  Hunter S Thompson

 

 

86,847.  Risks inherent in economic activities can be dealt with in a wide variety of ways.  In addition to the commodity speculation and inventory management discussed in the previous chapter, other ways of dealing with risk include stocks, bonds, and insurance.  There are also other economic activities analogous to stocks, bonds, and insurance which deal with risks in ways that are legally different, though similar economically.  Thomas Sowell, Basic Economics

 

 

96,810.  Risks that you control are much less a source of outrage than risks that are out of your control.  Peter Sandman

 

 

74,557.  GM is a really uncertain imprecise risky technology ... They just don’t know what they’re doing.  And we shouldn’t take that risk.  (GM Food & Risk)  Lord Peter Melchett, policy director Soil Association

 

 

74,562.  Over the last fifteen years, I and other scientists have put the FDA on notice about the potential dangers of genetically engineered foods.  Instead of responsible regulation we have seen bureaucratic bungling and obfuscation that have left public health and the environment at risk.  (GM Food & Risk & Danger)  Dr Philip Regal, Professor of Ecology, Evolution & Behavior University of Minnesota 1998
