Is the idea of Risk applied as a form of currency. I first heard this term from William Petty (Give credit where credit is due) and really thought more on the topic a few months after. Let me take a minute to elaborate. First off there is no certain amount or limit of “currency” you have but is based solely on decisions that you make; that will either aid to your life span or potentially chip away at your time on this earth. For ex; You can opt for full armor coverage, chest, shoulders, groin, neck and side plates (less risk areas per se, but mobility decreases while fatigue can set in faster) vs running a slick plate carrier (more risk areas, but mobility increases with less fatiguing.) Simply put it’s a Risk vs Reward mentality, is the juice worth the squeeze. Just about anything can fall under Risk Currency, such as tactics vs principles, liability vs training, subpar gear vs quality gear. Risk Currency can be determined and implemented at the higher up level such as admin or down to the patrol level base with Officers. In the end you decide where to spend that currency, Risk is a Currency, invest & spend it wisely.
