Nassim Taleb Tries to Educate the Financial/Economic Establishment

Of course they won't listen; the State and Financial/Economic Elite are not interested in you or me.

Dear David (if I may),

You and your party may be the only hope we have for a resilient society insulated from negative Black Swans and in which everyone has the opportunity to benefit from positive Black Swans. For I despair of the Obama administration's ability to fix this financial crisis and prevent future ones. I am appalled by the dangers it has been creating and its takeover by the same economic establishment responsible for this crisis.
