Has risk modelling and risk management lost its way? Professor Stefan Scholtes argues that contrary to popular belief, the risk management models in use today are not too simple - they are in fact far too complex.

Those Golden Eggs Come From Somewhere: Internet Regulation at a Crossroads
A discussion of how largely well-intentioned political and legal reactions to the highest-profile risks of ICT creates a danger of perhaps killing the goose that is giving us golden eggs of innovation, decentralization, and personal empowerment. From its inception, many have recognized the Internet's potential as a liberating, decentralizing, and, yes, destabilizing technology but also its counter-potential as a controlling and centralizing technology. Over the last two decades, predictions abo
