“Battle is the collision of opposing forces—animate, interactive, and unpredictable in behavior.”

Economics is the allocation of scarce resources amongst competing ends, constrained otpmisation, … and war is hell, the ultimate foundry for leadership.
Optimisation, risk managment, leadership and agility. Look no further than economics and war.
