Kahneman And Taleb On Biases, The Illusion Of Patterns And The Perception Of Risk And Denial

Nassim Taleb and Daniel Kahneman discuss Government Sponsored Enterprises, which according to Taleb are “sitting on a barrel of dynamite” (and everyone agrees), cognitive biases, patterns (and their lack), and risk and denial perceptions.

Daniel Kahneman is the author of Thinking, Fast and Slow, which is a must read.

Nassim Taleb, author of many books—The Black SwanFooled By Randomness, and The Bed of Procrustes—is in the process of writing a new book.
