Risk: The Science and Po. .has been added to your Cart. I have read a couple of books on this theme before, especially The Culture of Fear.

Political risk is a type of risk faced by investors, corporations, and governments that political decisions, events, or conditions will significantly affect the profitability of a business actor or the expected value of a given economic action. Political risk can be understood and managed with reasoned foresight and investment. The term political risk has had many different meanings over time

I recently applied for a free smoke alarm from the London Fire Brigade, who insisted that it could not put the device in the post and risk me fitting it incorrectly; a trained firefighter would visit my property to do the job. However, I was warned that "the Fire Brigade has a legal duty to provide.

I recently applied for a free smoke alarm from the London Fire Brigade, who insisted that it could not put the device in the post and risk me fitting it incorrectly; a trained firefighter would visit my property to do the job. However, I was warned that "the Fire Brigade has a legal duty to provide a safe working environment to protect the health of its staff" and that "if a smoke-free environment cannot be provided, our staff will need to assess the situation before proceeding". This shows an eccentric attitude towards danger, to say the least.

Public views of risk are often inconsistent and seemingly irrational, and a gulf exists between risk perceptions and attitudes of the public and those of ‘experts’. On the other hand, experts often claim unjustifiably high levels of confidence in their predictions of policy choice outcomes, creating a lack of public faith in their recommendations.

Regulating pesticidesA balance of risk. Risk is something you measure in the real world Hazard assessment has a certain purity, but that purity is often irrelevant to real risk

Regulating pesticidesA balance of risk. Pesticides keep food edible and cheap. On the other hand they are, by definition, poisonous. Europe’s legislators thus face a dilemma. Risk is something you measure in the real world. Risk depends not just on how toxic a chemical is, but on how it is actually used, how much of it is used and how often it is used. At the moment, Europe's rules on pesticides are based on risk. Hazard assessment has a certain purity, but that purity is often irrelevant to real risk. On the other hand, a true risk assessment is impossible, since not all of the variables can be identified, let alone measured and modelled.
