You are in an interview and the executive states the following:
“When you were talking a while ago about taking risks, I wondered just whose money you were talking about. A fellow I know out in California insists that all new product team members invest their own money (with his) in their projects. Fifty thousands dollars is not unusual. In that system, I’ll bet you would be seeking to avoid risks, not trying to find them.”
 
What do you think?  Is this fair? Would it make you more careful in developing products?  Would you still be as risky if you are “risking” your money?

Read Chapter 2 and review the Case Oculus Rift.  answer the following questions:
