Pascal’s Wager and other low risks with high stakes


In this episode of Rationally Speaking I argue that it’s much trickier to rebut Pascal’s Wager than most people think. Julia and I also discuss how to handle other decisions where a risk has very low probability but would matter a lot if it came true – should you round them down to zero? Does it matter how measurable the risk is? And should you take into account the chance you’re being scammed?
