The 100 Year Storm

Hubris Axiom upon which Nobel prizes were
won We can eradicate risk with the new math,
the new instruments. We can refine the
eradication process ad infinitum derivatives of
derivatives of derivatives. A few tens of
trillions of of exposureso what? We dont
want to be the first1st to bailonly wimps quit
when they get their third consecutive 10M bonus
at age 29. I got this because Im smartthis was
not repeat not luck I deserved every damn
penny. Counter text Fooled By RandomnessNassim

Greed Duh.

Quant primacy Too much faith in super-smart
intellectuals Reminds me to the point of dotting
of the is and crossing of the ts of David
Halberstams The Best The Brighteston the
Vietnam quagmire If youre not a 100 quant
convert, youre old school and held up to
ridiculeeven if youre Warren Buffett.

Step shift in complexity Fact is, it became
incomprehensible. Connectedness in general,
global totally new and, again, incomprehensible.

Perception Is Everything Financial markets
are, by design, a house of cardse.g., basic idea
is to take a dollar of deposits and lend 10 based
thereupon, depending on the depositors not to
withdraw all at once. Emotions rule as much on
Wall Street as at the football stadium!!!!!! Expe
ctations are everything!!!!! Madness of crowds
is just thatmadness!!!!! It is axiomatic that
house prices will rise and rise and riseand then
rise some more.

Basics Rotten Mary and Joe couldnt have paid
the loan back if hell had frozen overthey were
not, simply, creditworthy. The incentives were
nuttylend to anyone and everyone and collect the
full commission when you book the loan and get
fired if you dont book it. Message from In
Search of Excellence, in another context, Its
the basics, stupidJapan is killing us, circa
1980, because (1) their cars work and (2) they
ask their workers how to make them even better.

Good Ideology Run Amok De-regulation
Holy. If de-regulation is good, then more is
better.

Allied commands depend on mutual confidence
and this confidence is gained, above all
through the development of friendships.
General D.D. Eisenhower, Armchair General
(05.08)Perhaps his most outstanding ability
at West Point was the ease with which he made
friends and earned the trust of fellow cadets
who came from widely varied backgrounds it was
a quality that would pay great dividends during
his future coalition command

  • It was much later that I realized Dads secret.
    He gained respect by giving it. He talked and
    listened to the fourth-grade kids in Spring
    Valley who shined shoes the same way he talked
    and listened to a bishop or a college president.
    He was seriously interested in who you were and
    what you had to say.

59
There is a misconception that supportive
interactions require more staff or more time and
are therefore more costly. Although labor costs
are a substantial part of any hospital budget,
the interactions themselves add nothing to the
budget. Kindness is free. Listening to patients
or answering their questions costs nothing. It
can be argued that negative interactionsalienatin
g patients, being non-responsive to their needs
or limiting their sense of controlcan be very
costly. Angry, frustrated or frightened
patients may be combative, withdrawn and less
cooperativerequiring far more time than it
would have taken to interact with them initially
in a positive way. Putting Patients First,

10 UNASSAILABLE REASONS WOMEN
RULE Women make all the financial
decisions.Women control all the wealth. Women
substantially outlive men. Women start most of
the new businesses. Womens work force
participation rates have soared
worldwide. Women are closing in on same pay for
same job. Women are penetrating senior
ranks rapidly even if the pace is slow for
the corner office per se. Womens
leadership strengths are exceptionally well
aligned with new organizational effectiveness
imperatives. Women are better salespersons than
men. Women buy almost everythingcommercial
as well as consumer goods. So what exactly is
the point of men?

This is so simple it sounds stupid, but it is
amazing how few oil people really understand that
you only find oil if you drill wells. You may
think youre finding it when youre drawing maps
and studying logs, but you have to drill.

We made mistakes, of course. Most of them were
omissions we didnt think of when we initially
wrote the software. We fixed them by doing it
over and over, again and again. We do the same
today. While our competitors are still sucking
their thumbs trying to make the design perfect,
were already on prototype version 5. By the
time our rivals are ready with wires and screws,
we are on version 10. It gets back to planning
versus acting We act from day one others plan
how to planfor months. Bloomberg by Bloomberg
