About this book

The threat we face from high-stakes risk has never been higher. These challenges include environmental pollution, fragile financial systems and the threat of widespread geopolitical violence. This book suggests that a return to natural risk levels – those in accordance with naturally occurring background levels – is both desirable and achievable.

About the authors

MARK JABLONOWSKI has over 30 years of experience as a professional risk manager, analyst and researcher. His focus now turns from the boardroom, and the narrow interests reflected in the corporate 'bottom line', to the understanding of how risk affects all of us, as citizens of the wider natural world. Toward this end he has founded, and directs, naturalrisk.org.
