Winston's Words of Wisdom

The Black Swan by Nassim Nicholas Taleb

First and foremost, I was extremely relieved to find out that dogs are not at risk of catching COVID-19… In fact it’s been quite nice having the family around all week, but a bit odd and amusing to see usually reserved Brits keep an even greater distance than normal. I am a huge fan of running up and giving a good lick or sniff in someone’s face! In fairness, that wouldn’t be appropriate for most humans at the best of times…. 

That brings me nicely to my recommendation of the week – The Black Swan by Nassim Nicholas Taleb – who successfully predicted the credit crunch in 2008 and also this current Pandemic you guys are grappling with. The book focuses on the impacts of rare but unpredictable outlier events (Black Swans), sound timely? A little heavy going in places, but well worth looking up if you have some time on your hands at present…

I also thought it was worth sharing this clip of Bill Gates from his Ted Talk back in 2015. I am going to repeat that, 2015… was all this actually quite predictable? 😳
