pete_dushenski: british were in sea war with asia as well around the same time, ya ?
mircea_popescu: no. the british hadn't yet been invented at that point.
mircea_popescu: the dutch followed the portuguese, and after their conquest of the offshore platform and re-basing of their ships there....
mircea_popescu: "In other words, the Fed, by centralizing stress testing around its own approach, is incentivizing banks to follow suit, which may push them to accumulate similar exposures to one another and to manage them in similar ways, resulting in decreased diversification and increased risk. This is a question raised by particularly prescriptive rules like the Fed’s 5 percent hurdle, which are simple to monitor but may be just
mircea_popescu: as simple to game."
mircea_popescu: in other words, the us fed is managed way the fuck worse than b-a. because hey, the world is full of "physics phds" that went to fucking mit.

pete_dushenski: not as many fillies at pasture
pete_dushenski: not the kind you'd take home to mom, at any rate.
mircea_popescu: And why his favored approach to stress testing (a technique called Bayesian nets) << oh lordy.
mircea_popescu: doesn’t involve trying to derive probabilities at all, but rather asks the user to just “produce your best-informed guess.” << and you'd love this precisely because of who you are, and where yo ulive, and what you want to be true.

asciilifeform: phun phakt. can tune out if ever hear 'physics phd!!1111' - this has been a leper's bell of pseudoscientific cheap crackpottery for a century+
mircea_popescu: the actual bones under the abomination are mostly "this is everything" and "all people are equally, each individually, the complete and proud representation of all humanity" and bla bla.

mircea_popescu: I dropped my bike in a bush and texted our salesperson about the idea. <<< re the entire chechens thread.

ben_vulpes: i have a perfectly capable baker on staff already. yes it takes some time to make bread. so bake, and later eat.
ben_vulpes: "yes, this is the best flour your father can afford, and the best bread your mother can bake. be glad there is bread on the table and not the shit your little friends must eat."
