Being Nassim Nicholas Taleb

Here is the brilliant Nassim Nicholas Taleb on the financial crisis. "Our understanding of the world has proven to be extremely weak," he says. "We have to learn today to face a world we do not understand."

Are we prepared to scrap what we believe we knew to start fresh, to enter into a brave new world? If we are at the beginning of this financial crisis, I'd say scrap what we think we know and gather some thinkers with innovative solutions. Perhaps NNT can lead in this effort.
