DefCon 13 talk

6 Feb, 2014

Graham talks about the connection between risk and inequality, and says that economic inequality should be tackled at the stage where wealth becomes power, as decreasing the financial reward for taking risk decreases creativity:

Risk and reward have to be in proportion…if you lop off the top of the possible rewards, you decrease people’s willingness to take risks
