Thank you for laying out the issue of uncertainty so plainly in the “In My Opinon” column (Actuarial Review, February 2009). At the end of the day, you are pointing out that our comfort zone, arising out of the practice of using past experience as the main guide for making decisions about the future, is really no comfort zone at all!
More generally the February 2009 issue of AR is filled with interesting pieces and I must salute you and the entire editorial team for taking AR to new heights.
