Nassim Taleb Sums Up America's Election In 17 "Black Swan" Words

Recommended Posts

Sometimes, less is more, and in infamous "Black Swan" philosopher Nassim Taleb's case, summing up the chaos that is enveloping America, and its forthcoming election was as simple as the following:

 

"

are

."

"People are not voting for Trump (or Sanders).
People are just voting, finally, to destroy the establishment."
