At the start of this week we had a farewell dinner with our house hosts Trudy and Ian. He is a financial adviser and we we were talking about communicating risk to his customers. I can see parallels between giving investment advice and being a forecaster. Good predictions of rivers can be like money in the bank to some users. But what happens when the market crashes?
At first I thought there must be that sinking feeling, an initial denial as to what's happening. There's that sense that there has to be an "undo" button, "please let this not be happening". Then there's the gut churning realization that the money is gone and not coming back. It seems unfair. I shouldn't be going through this.
