Revisited: Nassim Taleb at Harvard


Do yourself a favour and spend 10 mins.

Whist NNT is pretty efficient at getting his message across, because he tends to talk to audiences involved with the Financial sector, an awful lot of his interviews tend to reach a limited audience.

In this short video he is addressing students involved with social sciences and telling them (as usual) how it is. NOT how they, their parents and many, many others believe it is based upon what has gone before.

Spelling out the catastrophic dangers of assuming too much based upon probability when complexity and uncertainty are the “new games in town” in this new modernity.
