You all fell for Taylor's subterfuge even harder than Axe did.

I think this is giving Taylor way more credit than she deserves.

She's good with Numbers and Math. She doesn't have the same instinct with people the way Axe does.

Hence her obsession with unproven "quants". To these ppl it's all about using their brainpower. They think intelligence and the right algorithms (and if they are in government, the right public policies) can solve anything. Their flaw is they don't understand humans nearly as well as they arrogantly believe they do

Also why would the Russian billionaire trust an unproven no-name Taylor with 1 year track record with some quant software that is not tested over Axe who literally built a billion dollar company over decades
