    I wonder if Taleb's new Black Swan book has anything substantively new?
     
  5. Sounds like the Black Swan never hit.
     
  6. Are you saying that his fund "collapsed" for lack of a better word?

    Actually, he could have faced his own black swan - that there were no black swans since 911.

    I guess, he had a cut off point after which he pulled the plug.
