Uncertainty is not just probability

I have just had published my paper, based on the discussion paper referred to in a previous post. In Facebook it is described as:

An understanding of Keynesian uncertainties can be relevant to many contemporary challenges. Keynes was arguably the first person to put probability theory on a sound mathematical footing. …

So it is not just for economists. I could be tempted to discuss the wider implications.

Comments are welcome here, at the publisher’s web site or on Facebook. I’m told that it is also discussed on Google+, Twitter and LinkedIn, but I couldn’t find it – maybe I’ll try again later.

    We are adding this paper to the top of our reading list … We will write back soon

      Thanks. I am particularly interested in how relevant people think it could be more broadly than economics.

        Indeed … my particular area of interest is law and litigation (think of O.W. Holmes’s definition of law as “a prophecy what the courts will do in fact”), so I can’t wait to read your paper and continue “cross-fertilizing’ ideas
