This week we speak to Allison Schrager, author, Bloomberg columnist, and senior fellow at the Manhattan Institute. Allison specialises in the intersection of economic policy and finance, leading to some fascinating recent insights into behavior and risk.

We discuss some of Allison’s recent work such as: 'Americans need to learn to live more like Europeans', 'Do people actually make reasonably good risk decisions if given the right information', 'Why the biggest risk in investing is risk-free assets' and 'Should people even be allowed to do stock picking.'
