Black Swans

Tweet [1]

The latest EconTalk is a conversation with Nassim Nicholas Taleb [2] about the ideas in his two books, Fooled by Randomness and The Black Swan. He is a very interesting guy. Much of what he said is well known—we have trouble absorbing and thinking about low probability events. But he says it in a way that makes me think about it in a way I hadn’t before.
