Michael Giberson

Rick Bush explains how one manager prevents “risk amnesia” in a Transmission & Distribution World column. (Reg. required.) Risk amnesia is a condition that can spring up when an investment decision turns out badly, and suddenly no one can recall being part of the decision. Bush wrote:
