Yes Jerry, but cero gambling conduct is not good either.   From the arrival of Cristobal Colon to America (discounting the systematic domination of native people), to the invention of Linux within an incentive framework that departs bravely and radically from market economy (this doesn’t say anything about its feasibility in a larger scale), taking risks brings good things about.   Regards,A.

The most that one can do is to take actions which are believed ex ante to reduce the risk.  If you want to "overcome gambling conduct", you have to overcome the market.   In solidarity, Jerry
