Measuring risk – a vignette

Thinking of risk, how much of it is good or bad? Despite all the illuminating and far-reaching results available in the literature on the topic, I will go back to the very basics: first, I will briefly touch upon risk preferences, then look at some elusive behavior of larger risks, and finally venture into extremes. Though somewhat philosophical in nature, the talk is based on some of the recently published results by the speaker and his co-authors, and is very much accessible to students with rudimentary knowledge of statistics and insurance.
