Nassim Nicholas Taleb introduced by David McWilliams

 

Nassim Nicholas Taleb,the Lebanese-American essayist, scholar, statistician and risk analyst, described as the ‘hottest thinker in the world’, speaks of the challenges of how to live and act in a world we do not understand. Taleb’s contrarian wisdom has proved acute and accurate. In a scintillating session, he discusses his ideas of randomness, robustification and antifragility and how they impact every aspect of material and philosophical life.
