  1. This is a great post and reminds me a lot of what Gerd Gigerenzer is trying to communicate. Despite the fact that the HBR post doesn't specifically deal with understanding "risk", it illustrates the broader concept that people can understand data when it's presented in a clear way, rather than the Kahneman/Sunstein view of the world that people are generally stupid and they are hopeless, due to the 2 system mind problem in the case of Kahneman or need the equivalent of a philosopher king in the case of Sunstein.
