"Unless consequential decisions are taken by people who pay for the consequences, the world would vulnerable to total systemic collapse. And if you wonder why there is a current riot against a certain class of self-congratulatory “experts”, skin the game will provide a clear answer: the public has viscerally detected that some “educated” but cosmetic experts have no skin in the game and will never learn from their mistakes, whether individually or, more dangerously, collectively.
Systems don’t learn because people learn individually –that’s the myth of modernity. Systems learn at the collective level by the mechanism of selection: by eliminating those elements that reduce the fitness of the whole, provided these have skin in the game.[Moi ici: Isto é tão Maliranta!!! Foi a Maliranta que roubei a primeira citação na coluna de citações no lado direito deste blogue - 2007!!! Como o tempo voa - ""In essence, creative destruction means that low productivity plants are displaced by high productivity plants""]
And in the absence of the filtering of skin in the game, the mechanisms of evolution fail: if someone else dies in your stead, the built up of asymmetric risks and misfitness will cause the system to eventually blow-up.[Moi ici: Beware de sistemas políticos (todos sem skin in the game) que absorbem cada vez mais capacidade de decisão]
Yet the social science and the bureaucrato-BSers have missed and keeps missing that skin in the game is an essential filter. Why? Because, outside of hard science, scholars who do not have skin in the game fail to get that while in academia there is no difference between academia and the real world, in the real world, there is."[Moi ici: Eheheheh os media ainda não perceberam isto - 25 exemplos aqui
BTW, e políticos que vivem em casa dos papás, ou ligados ao soro da máquina do estado, a debitar sobre o que é que os empresários devem ou não fazer?
