Taleb on Antifragility
Here are a few talks by Nassim Nicholas Taleb on his new book, Antifragile. Even though they seem to all sound and look the same, the non-intuitive idea of antifragility is discussed in a variety of contexts with many examples as well as sometimes very interesting and challenging interviewers.
“David Simon (the author of the serie) has said that despite its presentation as a crime drama, the show is “really about the American city, and about how we live together.
