A website dedicated to the popular show Lost published a post a while back about how each of the characters on the show would make a peanut butter and jam sandwich. I have borrowed this idea to illustrate how some finance or risk management professionals might make their own sandwich.

In my first PBJ post, we look at how Nassim Taleb, author of The Black Swan might make a sandwich. This is intended to be jokes.

How to Make a Peanut Butter Sandwich: Nassim Taleb

1. Complain that statisticians, mathematicians, physicists, financial analysts, Nobel prize winners cannot make a peanut butter sandwich.

2. Make the most pretentious and boring sandwich ever then don’t explain to anyone how you did it.

3. Claim you invented peanut butter.

4. Heckle at everyone else’s sandwiches.

5. Eat a swan instead.
