Nassim Taleb: ‘Less fragility crucial to economic growth’

Attended a client event yesterday to watch Nassim Taleb in action.

A former MD and Wall Street trader, Nassim’s acclaimed The Black Swan (Random House, 2007) has won him many admirers. During his presentation he focused on the need for all of us to ‘to learn from failure’. As he argued, “in an overly leveraged world, avoiding mistakes is incredibly profitable. The key is to make the world, and financial markets and institutions, less fragile.”
