Skin in the game - Hidden asymmetries in daily life - Nassim Nicholas Taleb

This quote was added by starbreaker
Many problems in society come from the interventions of people who sell complicated solutions because that's what their position and training invite them to do. There is absolutely no gain for someone in such a position to propose something simple: you are rewarded for perception, not results. Meanwhile, they pay no price for the side effects that grow nonlinearly with such complications.
