The article presents three key arguments on #risktaking in #corporategovernance. Firstly, it asserts that #riskmanagers shouldn’t be automatically blamed for corporate failures arising from statistically justified risk-based decisions. It suggests a “statistics-based governance” rule to protect managers within legal limits.

Lastly, it contends that while expected-value analysis guides most decisions, for those with potential societal harm, public interests should also be considered.
