A few months ago, when Preet Bharara was fired by Trump and then asked if watching BILLIONS was now weird, he responded¬†“Well, for some people, it’s always been weird”.

Risk & Uncertainty: Better Judgment

It’s easy to confuse the two but as Frank Knight wrote almost a century ago, they are two different things.
