The Time Paradox
Unravelling the mysteries of time
Gambling is an industry that has chance at the core of its business model. But it takes care not to leave a lot of things to chance, especially when it is about exploiting the fact that those focused on the present tend to make different choices from those focused on the future. For instance, from the moment you enter a Las Vegas casino, you enter a timeless world of present hedonism in which the future does not exist, as Philip Zimbardo describes in The Time Paradox: Using the new psychology of time to your advantage.
