Another great Taleb quote

Last October, I wrote a post explaining the top 5 reasons that Nassim Taleb is nuts. It garnered me much praise from the blogosphere, and surprisingly no financial reward.

Today I get to share another fabulous quote by Mr. Taleb, famed for his book Black Swan about a concept he explained in 480 pages which Bazooka Joe could have explained to Pesty in a four frame comic. Incidentally, Taleb doesn’t provide the reader with any gum.

At a conference in Russia, he expressed his displeasure in the US Dollar and preference for the Euro, despite the debt troubles of the PIIGS by explaining: “Euros have Germany, the dollar has nothing“.

Another brilliant quote to add to the list.
