In a realm where everything is so quantifiable, measurable and&nbsp;trackable, one would expect exceptionally good decision-making. But it&#39;s our human wiring, our proclivity for seeing things as we want them to be rather than as they truly are, that makes us vulnerable to influences we often aren&#39;t even conscious of. And the bad decisions -- and bad outcomes -- ensue.</p> <p><a href="http://www.peakprosperity.com/podcast/92631/dan-ariely-why-next-market-downturn-may-quickly-become-full-blown-panic" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://www.peakprosperity.com/podcast/92631/dan-ariely-why-next-market-downturn-may-quickly-become-full-blown-panic#comments Podcast behavioral economics conflict of interest Dan Ariely financial sysem panic trust http://www.peakprosperity.com/crss/node/92631 Sun, 17 May 2015 15:37:29 +0000 Adam Taggart 92631 at http://www.peakprosperity.com Becca Martenson: Building Community http://www.peakprosperity.com/podcast/92556/becca-martenson-building-community ]]><p>Building community takes time and real effort. Especially in today&#39;s society, where many of the old social norms that fostered community during our grandparents age have been severed by suburban fences, the rat-race&nbsp;workstyle, and the false sense of belonging offered by television and the Internet.</p> <p>So how exactly does one do it?</p> <p><a href="http://www.peakprosperity.com/podcast/92556/becca-martenson-building-community" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://www.peakprosperity.com/podcast/92556/becca-martenson-building-community#comments Podcast Becca Martenson Community Building resilience http://www.peakprosperity.com/crss/node/92556 Sun, 10 May 2015 19:17:45 +0000 Adam Taggart 92556 at http://www.peakprosperity.com Joe Saluzzi: Broken Markets http://www.peakprosperity.com/podcast/92435/joe-saluzzi-broken-markets ]]><p>As luck would have it, we had Joe&nbsp;Saluzzi&nbsp;lined up to record a podcast the day the news broke recently that the suspected&nbsp;culprit for the 2010 flash crash,&nbsp;Navinder&nbsp;Singh&nbsp;Sarao, had been arrested.</p> <p>In this discussion, Joe shares his suspicions about&nbsp;Sarao&nbsp;(a contributor to the crash, but highly unlikely to be the actual cause) and then provides his expert assessment of what has been done in the intervening years since the flash crash to safeguard the market against a similar failure (precious little). In his opinion, a winner-take-all high-tech arms race, clueless and toothless regulators, and central bank price distortion are conspiring to make us more vulnerable -- not less -- to another systemic breakdown.</p> <p><a href="http://www.peakprosperity.com/podcast/92435/joe-saluzzi-broken-markets" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://www.peakprosperity.com/podcast/92435/joe-saluzzi-broken-markets#comments Podcast algorithms flash crash HFT Joe Saluzzi Markets http://www.peakprosperity.com/crss/node/92435 Sun, 03 May 2015 20:58:30 +0000 Adam Taggart 92435 at http://www.peakprosperity.com Steen Jakobsen: Get Ready For The Biggest Margin Call In History http://www.peakprosperity.com/podcast/92386/steen-jakobsen-get-ready-biggest-margin-call-history ]]><p>Economist Steen&nbsp;Jakobsen, Chief Investment Officer of&nbsp;Saxo&nbsp;Bank, believes 2015 will be another &quot;lost year&quot; for the economy.
