Nassim Nicholas Taleb at Cambridge University

Nassim Taleb

Nassim Nicholas Taleb at Cambridge UniversityNassim Nicholas Taleb has authored three books, but The Black Swan is the best (one of the best books I ever read), and is required reading for all Value Walk readers. Taleb recently spoke at Cambridge. Nassim spoke on “Neomania and the Procrustean Bed of Technology”, in which he considers the organic evolution of true innovation as opposed to the neomaniac obsessive consumption of new technologies, the vast majority of which are neither memorable, nor have longevity. He goes on to consider how the organic process of innovation has been undermined by statist reactions to the financial crisis and the implications this has for our susceptibility to future financial strife.
