Active Management of Operational Risk in the Regimes of the “Unknown”: What Can Machine Learning or Heuristics Deliver?
While machine learning has been tested successfully in the regime of the “known,” heuristics typically provide better results for an active operational risk management (in the sense of forecasting), however, precursors in existing data can open a chance for machine learning to provide early warnings even for the regime for the "unknown unknown".

Thoughts and feelings about climate change : an in-depth investigation
This thesis is based on the hypothesis that little is being done to address the problems of climate change and that this is widely denied. It provides a qualitative investigation of thoughts andExpand
Systemic Contingent Claims Analysis
This chapter introduces a new framework for macroprudential analysis using a riskadjusted balance sheet approach that supports policy eff orts aimed at mitigating systemic risk from linkages betweenExpand
Ultra Easy Monetary Policy and the Law of Unintended Consequences
In this paper, an attempt is made to evaluate the desirability of ultra easy monetary policy by weighing up the balance of the desirable short run effects and the undesirable longer run effects – theExpand

Risk Appetite and Endogenous Risk
Risk is endogenous. Equilibrium risk is the fixed point of the mapping that takes perceived risk to actual risk. When risk-neutral traders operate under Value-at-Risk constraints, market conditionsExpand
Funding Liquidity Risk in a Quantitative Model of Systemic Stability
We demonstrate how the introduction of liability-side feedbacks affects the properties of a quantitative model of systemic risk. The model is known as RAMSI and is still in its development phase. ItExpand
Optimal Versus Naive Diversification: How Inefficient is the 1/N Portfolio Strategy?
We evaluate the out-of-sample performance of the sample-based mean-variance model, and its extensions designed to reduce estimation error, relative to the naive 1-N portfolio. Of the 14 models weExpand
Collective Risk Management in a Flight to Quality Episode
We present a model of optimal intervention in a flight to quality episode. The reason for intervention stems from a collective bias in agents' expectations. Agents in the model make risk managementExpand

This paper contrasts HOT with alternative perspectives on complexity, drawing on real-world examples and also model systems, particularly those from self-organized criticality. Expand
Naive Diversification Strategies in Defined Contribution Saving Plans
There is a worldwide trend toward defined contribution saving plans and growing interest in privatized Social Security plans. In both environments, individuals are given some responsibility to makeExpand
Emergence of scaling in random networks
A model based on these two ingredients reproduces the observed stationary scale-free distributions, which indicates that the development of large networks is governed by robust self-organizing phenomena that go beyond the particulars of the individual systems. Expand
