Predicting Crisis: Dr Doom & the Black Swan

 EmailPrint This Post Print This Post

While on the road in Europe, I am posting a thought-provoking video featuring Nouriel Roubini, professor of economics at New York University and chairman of RGE Monitor, and Nassim Taleb, author of The Black Swan. The discussion deals with how to predict a financial crisis and the five signs of a bear. They also convey important knowledge on how to cope with the crisis, both on a structural and personal level.

    Roubini and Taleb are always worth listening to. It would be more instructional to be able to hear their complete answers. But listening to talking heads that constantly interrupt is very off putting especially when they don’t have much to say.

    Great, CNBC got two of the few who saw it coming but; pity they put them on with the weakest shift of the day. Bill, Michelle and, by far the worst, Dennis, are so in love with the sound of their own voices that I felt lucky to hear most of what the great ones had to say. Do you pay your regulars by the word? All but Sue looked pretty bad, shouting down the guests and cutting them off at the pass. Manners, ladies and gentlemen, manners.
