“There are three big, global threats that keep Michele Wucker, a risk expert, up at night: Inequality, financial fragility (that is, the chance of another economic meltdown), and the climate crisis. And all of these are connected, she says,” Kate Yoder writes in Grist. The April 9, 2021 article, ” ‘The world is getting scarier’: How climate change multiplies risk,” profiles Gray Rhino & Company founder and CEO Michele Wucker and gives highlights of her new book, YOU ARE WHAT YOU RISK: The New Art and Science of Navigating an Uncertain World.
“The book doesn’t fit easily in any category: It could appear on the “self-help” shelf in the bookstore, or sit in a section devoted to economics, business, or psychology,” Yoder wrote. “Her focus zooms in to examine personal predicaments and zooms out to global crises, analyzing how people wrestle with choices and uncertainty.The book’s release comes at a time when people are starting to pay more attention to the economic ramifications of climate change.”
