LifeCycle In The Media


An Economist Walks into a Brothel:
And Other Unexpected Places to Understand Risk

Allison Schrager released her first book in April 2019. Each chapter of the book tells a real-world story of how someone analyzed, measured, and dealt with risk. The lessons from the book directly apply to all of our financial lives and the book makes those lessons accessible to everyone.

Allison has been in the media describing her book and how the ideas in the book (and some of LifeCycle’s core concepts) apply to household finances:
