“ From across the country, Portland looms as this place where everything comes in quirkier, locally produced, more artisanal versions of what the rest of us have.

City Hall is seriously growing its own Swiss chard.

“ A bank is a collection of reasonable guesses about valuation. It is a purely statistical process. There is no objective reality. At best, there is a probability distribution, a reason to reject the null hypothesis with some level of confidence. If a $100 billion bank announces $5 billion of earnings this quarter, there is a high (not 100 percent!) probability that it made more than zero dollars.

As a dude in biz school…you say nothing is real, but I say those “statistics” are going to end up making someone a shit-ton of money.

Think of these stats like the various iterations of “this one or that one” you do in an eye exam. Ultimately, they lead to the right set of glasses for you. In business, they lead to the proper amount of risk/reward the businessman seeks….
