Jim will be on the radio all this week from 5:00 pm until 7:00 pm at http://www.wjbo.com.  And remember his Sunday Show from 9:00 am until 11:00 am central time  heard right here on this site.

When oil companies, in pursuit of huge profits, follow unchartered paths, are they properly assessing the risk involved? The same for the Wall Street financial companies that cratered and had to be bailed out by taxpayers. Isn’t risk assessment critical for oil companies and financial institutions alike, and when does government policy actually encourage private companies to take chances that really are not justified? Jim’s new column takes a look at the tough regulatory area that is at the various basis of the BP debate. You can read his column now by Clicking Here.  And doesn’t the video below sum up the lack of properly planning on the part of BP?  Take a look.
