Nick says this after he is offered to get involved in a side business of Gatsby's. He refuses, because he knows that it is only offered out of a sense of obligation. Had it been offered in a different way, he might have taken it and might have gotten himself in a lot of trouble.

What to do when a crisis prevention programme fails?

AnswerIdeally, risk management should incorporate not only a crisis prevention programme, but also a crisis management programme - what some people would call a "Plan B". This means that if the crisis is not averted, then plans are already in place to manage the crisis and minimise the consequences. A possible exception to having a defined crisis management programme could arguably be in matters of personal relationships, since the mere existence of such a plan could modify the enthusiasm with which crisis prevention is pursued. Even then, a specialist could have a basic awareness of the circumstances, with an informal crisis management programme in mind.If a crisis management programme is not in place and a crisis is not averted, then one should be developed on an urgent basis, even as it is being implemented. Because crises are so unpredictable, both in scope and nature, all crisis management plans should be subject to continuous review until the problem is resolved.
