Nassim Nicholas Taleb Quote: “It is the system and its fragility, not events, that must be studied – what physicists call “percolation theory,” in which the properties of the randomness of the terrain are studied, rather than those of a single element of the terrain.”
Nassim Nicholas Taleb Quote: “Paul Krugman is a danger to society!”
Nassim Nicholas Taleb Quote: “There is a Yiddish saying: “If I am going to be forced to eat pork, it better be of the best kind.”
Nassim Nicholas Taleb Quote: “In a textbook case of naive empiricism, the author also looked for traits these millionaires had in common and figured out that they shared a taste for risk taking. Clearly risk taking is necessary for large success – but it is also necessary for failure. Had the author done the same study on bankrupt citizens he would certainly have found a predilection for risk taking.”
Nassim Nicholas Taleb Quote: “Unless you are perfectly narcissistic and psychopathic – even then – your worst-case scenario is never limited to the loss of only your life.”
Nassim Nicholas Taleb Quote: “Debt is a mistake between lender and borrower, and both should suffer.”

Nassim Nicholas Taleb Quote: “Ex cura theoria nascitur.”
Nassim Nicholas Taleb Quote: “All of technology, really, is about maximizing free options.”
Nassim Nicholas Taleb Quote: “Imagine a speck of dust next to a planet a billion times the size of the earth. The speck of dust represents the odds in favor of your being born; the huge planet would be the odds against it. So stop sweating the small stuff. Don’t be like the ingrate who got a castle as a present and worried about the mildew in the bathroom. Stop looking the gift horse in the mouth – remember that you are a Black Swan.”
Nassim Nicholas Taleb Quote: “A complex system, contrary to what people believe, does not require complicated systems and regulations and intricate policies.”
Nassim Nicholas Taleb Quote: “The tragedy of virtue is that the more obvious, boring, unoriginal, and sermonizing the proverb, the harder it is to implement.”
Nassim Nicholas Taleb Quote: “No matter how sophisticated our choices, how good we are at dominating the odds, randomness will have the last word.”
Nassim Nicholas Taleb Quote: “The left holds that because markets are stupid models should be smart; the right believes that because models are stupid markets should be smart. Alas, it never hit both sides that both markets and models are very stupid.”
Nassim Nicholas Taleb Quote: “Luck is the grand equalizer.”
Nassim Nicholas Taleb Quote: “Mild success can be explainable by skills and labor. Wild success is attributable to variance.”
Nassim Nicholas Taleb Quote: “The number of cultured people dropped below some critical level. Suddenly the place became a vacuum. Brain drain is hard to reverse, and some of the old refinement may be lost forever.”
Nassim Nicholas Taleb Quote: “But the worst touristification is the life we moderns have to lead in captivity, during our leisure hours: Friday night opera, scheduled parties, scheduled laughs. Again, golden jail. This “goal-driven” attitude hurts deeply inside my existential self.”

Nassim Nicholas Taleb Quote: “When you look at the past, the past will always be deterministic, since only one single observation took place.”

Nassim Nicholas Taleb Quote: “Mediocristan is where we must endure the tyranny of the collective, the routine, the obvious, and the predicted; Extremistan is where we are subjected to the tyranny of the singular, the accidental, the unseen, and the unpredicted.”
Nassim Nicholas Taleb Quote: “A king, angry at his son, swore that he would crush him with a large stone.”
Nassim Nicholas Taleb Quote: “The world we live in is vastly different from the world we think we live in.”
Nassim Nicholas Taleb Quote: “I want them poor and they deserve to be poor. You can’t have capitalism without punishment.”

Nassim Nicholas Taleb Quote: “During a radio interview, when I tried explaining to the journalist the nuance and the difference between the two statements I was told that I was “too complicated”; so I simply walked out of the studio, leaving them in the lurch. The depressing part is that those people who were committing such mistakes were educated journalists entrusted to represent the world to us lay persons.”
Nassim Nicholas Taleb Quote: “It has been more profitable for us to bind together in the wrong direction than to be alone in the right one. Those who have followed the assertive idiot rather than the introspective wise person have passed us some of their genes. This is apparent from a social pathology: psychopaths rally followers.”
Nassim Nicholas Taleb Quote: “Mother Nature does not develop Alzheimer’s – actually there is evidence that even humans would not easily lose brain function with age if they followed a regimen of stochastic exercise and stochastic fasting, took long walks, avoided sugar, bread, white rice, and stock market investments, and refrained from taking economics classes or reading such things as The New York Times.”
Nassim Nicholas Taleb Quote: “Two weekends in Philadelphia are not twice as pleasant as a single one – I’ve tried.”
Nassim Nicholas Taleb Quote: “Capitalism is about adventurers who get harmed by their mistakes, not people who harm others with their mistakes.”
Nassim Nicholas Taleb Quote: “Remember the psychological discussions on asymmetries in the perception of skills in the previous chapter? We see flaws in others and not in ourselves. Once again we seem to be wonderful at self-deceit machines.”
Nassim Nicholas Taleb Quote: “The best way to measure the loss of intellectual sophistication – this “nerdification,” to put it bluntly – is in the growing disappearance of sarcasm, as mechanic minds take insults a bit too literally.”
Nassim Nicholas Taleb Quote: “Learn to read history, get all the knowledge you can, do not frown on the anecdote, but do not draw any causal links, do not try to reverse engineer too much – but if you do, do not make big scientific claims.”
Nassim Nicholas Taleb Quote: “I repeat that we are explanation-seeking animals who tend to think that everything has an identifiable cause and grab the most apparent one as the explanation. Yet there may not be a visible because; to the contrary, frequently there is nothing, no even a spectrum of possible explanations.”
