Thought for the day

In order to progress, modern society should be treating ruined entrepreneurs in the same way we honor dead soldiers, perhaps not with as much honor, but using the exact same logic. . . .

— Nassim Taleb


But the difference is that non-ruined entrepreneurs get wealth and status, whereas non-dead soldiers come back to high chances of unemployment, addiction, and PTSD.

True, but I also wish I had the early retirement, generous pension and excellent healthcare of some of my ex-service friends and family (especially in the US)!
