Nassim Taleb on the Crisis

James Surowiecki interviews Nassim Taleb over at The New Yorker‘s new Currents (video) series. Taleb describes the recent financial crisis as a white swan (not a black one) and explains the poor risk metrics employed before the financial crisis. He also has harsh words for the Federal Reserve – specifically for “Bernanke’s incompetence.”[%comments]
