Two Warnings

Marginal Revolution | Tyler Cowen | Warn people about two things

One problem with disclosure regulation is that people grow accustomed to the warnings and caveats and their eyes glaze over. They stop paying attention.

So let’s say you are the Über-regulator. You get to warn people about two things. Once. [...]

Which two things do you pick for your warning?

“Driving is dangerous”

“Fight nuclear proliferation.”

“Don’t let your kid near a bucket.”

“Politics isn’t about policy.”

“Beware the Ides of March!”

“Some people out there suck!”
My picks:

"Your decisions have consequences."

"The universe is a dangerous, unfair place."
