Episode 29 of the Far Middle is dedicated to the legendary hitting machine Rod Carew. Nick discusses how the 18-time All-Star’s career was marked by keen risk-reward analysis (especially when it came to stealing home). Nick connects the idea of risk-reward analysis to investing in markets, “these days you see growing risks and diminishing rewards,” says Nick. He goes on to examine the state (and his concern) of geopolitics, the elite class’ obsession over tackling climate change and how that’s exacerbating much more pressing issues. Nick closes with a half-dozen examples of issues, from drug addiction to quality of life in Africa, being made worse due to climate zealotry.
