In this episode, Juan and Andy speak with Taylor Pearson, a fund manager with a particular interest in creating research-backed systems to make decisions in an uncertain world, thus making people more ‘antifragile’. One of these systems included ergodicity which can be explained as a scenario where the average outcome of the group is the same as the average outcome of the individual over time. An example of an ergodic systems would be the outcomes of a coin toss (heads/tails). If 100 people flip a coin once or 1 person flips a coin 100 times, you get the same outcome. Taylor discusses how this theory can help people make decisions in uncertain environments. Minutes: 01:10 Intro to Taylor 01:35 Notable days in history and their volatility 03:59 How do you define risk? 05:43 What is ergodicity? 08:23 Where is ergodicity relevant in our everyday life? 16:42 What is the best advice to give someone who may be succumbing to non-ergodic systems? 18:53 How does ergodicity apply in stock market scenarios? 23:53 How does diversification play a part? 26:25 Does diversification need to be oppositional? 29:52 How do you communicate probability in a way clients easily understand? 31:45 The Kelly Criterion: utilising a theory to size your decisions 34:36 An example of a bad decision 36:08 Book Recommendations – The Three Body Problem by Liu Cixin and The Origins of Political Order by Francis Fukuyama NEW EPISODES: You can subscribe via Podbean or use this feed URL (https://tvpschroders.podbean.com/feed.xml) in Apple Podcasts, Spotify, and other podcast players.

Taylor Pearson has spent the last decade researching and writing about how you can better invest your time and money in an uncertain world.

I read The End of Jobs two years ago, and it was part of the catalyst for me to leave the U.S and begin living abroad. In this interview, Taylor and I discuss:Why Taylor became obsessed with navigating an uncertain worldWhat's changed since Taylor first published The End of Jobs in 2015, and how Covid-19 will affect the job market moving forwardThe power of apprenticeships + how to get themThe importance of developing useful skills and willingness to do "schlep work"The thing most people don't ask Taylor about the way he views the worldFollow Taylor on Twitter: https://twitter.com/TaylorPearsonMeShow notes for this episode: www.radicallydifferentpodcast.com/episodes/the-power-of-apprenticeships-the-future-of-work-after-covid-19-and-navigating-uncertainty-with-the-author-of-the-end-of-jobs-taylor-pearsonJoin the Radically Different newsletter and follow Radically Different on Instagram and Facebook for updates and special opportunities.
