Letter to The Aegis | August 13, 2013
Editor: I want to thank you as well as compliment you for the editorial published Aug. 7, "Fire Safety key. " The editorial was absolutely excellent and the type that we need to promote fire safety. It has been an unusual few months and people do need to focus on prevention. As Gordon Graham, a well know speaker on the risk management, fire and law enforcement circuit states, "Predictable, Preventable. "  Your editorial drove that concept home! And, as we push for "whole community" basis of national preparedness, your paper delivers the appropriate and timely message.  Again, many thanks and I look forward to working together with The Aegis to promote safety for our citizens.  Russ Strickland , Director Harford County Department of Emergency Services

If you're stuck in a bad relationship, you might have something in common with the subprime mortgage mess. Subprime lenders failed to recognize the depth of their problems and ignored them until it was too late, says Yuval Bar-Or, an adjunct professor at the Johns Hopkins University Carey Business School. Similarly, failing to confront troubles with a mate could make things worse or keep you in a relationship that should have ended much earlier, he says. An unusual analogy from a business school academic, for sure.

Most businesses probably will never have an airplane crash into their offices, and most will likely never be terrorized through the mail, but companies that are prepared for crises have an easier time getting back on their feet. That's been the experience of Steve Sachs, senior vice president of the Hobbs Group LLC in Columbia, an insurance brokerage and consulting firm specializing in risk management that has helped major corporations get their businesses up and running after hurricanes, floods and other disasters.

THE FAILURE to strengthen New Orleans' levees before the arrival of Hurricane Katrina is a catastrophic collapse of risk management that carries lessons for policymakers, businesses, investors, consumers - everybody. Risk management is shorthand for identifying, assessing and preparing for threats - killer asteroids, dicey stocks, terrorist bombs, customer defections, job loss. Alan Greenspan's tenure as chairman of the Federal Reserve is a model of (apparently successful) risk management.

In 2008, I transitioned from professional practice to academia. Since then, I have been privileged to teach at several fine universities in theWashington, D.C.area. For me, the difficult economic times have had a silver lining in that they have given me so much to draw upon to illustrate course material. Before long, though, even as I was teaching about proper risk management and illustrating it with business world examples, I began wondering why this fundamental concept wasn't getting through to my students.

In September 2007, with Wall Street confronting a crisis caused by too many souring mortgages, Citigroup executives gathered in a wood-paneled library to assess their own well-being. There, Citigroup's chief executive, Charles O. Prince III, learned for the first time that the bank owned about $43 billion in mortgage-related assets. He asked Thomas G. Maheras, who oversaw trading at the bank, whether everything was OK.
