I chuckled when I read Nassim Taleb's recent blog post:
I am at the Edinburgh literary festival and the last thing I care about is you finance people. I've been swamped by emails telling me that I was right (forwarding stories about "25 sigmas" by the Goldman Sachs CEO --who needs to be replaced or banned from speaking to the press -- or the Rothman guy in the wsj on 1 in 10,000 year events). I don't understand these emails. It is as if I didn't know that I was right. Tell me what I don't know.
