Cavalcade of Risk Plus Frisky Risk Management

The latest edition of Cavalcade of Risk, hosted by Dennis Wall at Insurance Claims and Issues, is up. It's the risk-free option for checking out a potpourri of interesting posts related to risk.

And while we are on the topic of risk, let's give a Bronx cheer for Jamie Dimon, CEO of JP Morgan Chase, for the work of his risk management team. The bank's $2 billion plus loss was the result of "sloppy" and "stupid" trading, a "mistake" which involved "bad judgment," and which caused losses that are "very unfortunate" and that come at an "inopportune time," but which in any case are not "life threatening." The risk management team is supposed to prevent such problems, not perpetrate them. Oh, well, that's just the risk you take when your frisky risk managers manage risk.
