“The brutal logic of risk dictates that it’s cheaper to pay for the aftermath of a single, relatively localized disaster than it is to prepare for the same disaster in every place at every time.” (Wired, Nov. 2005 at 34).
Logical, maybe, and financially correct, perhaps, but try to persuade a Chief Compliance Officer. I read the provocative quote, included it here to stimulate thought, but basically shrug it off. These days, legal stumbles don’t remain sequestered as localized disasters. Cancers, they spread and grow.
