Turkey or Black Swan for Thanksgiving?

November 26th, 2009 · No Comments · Off-track

Although I am based in London, most readers of the blog are from the States – and everybody around the world probably knows it is a very important day for Americans: Thanksgiving!


Traditionally, it is a time to express gratitude and I’d like to express a big thank you to all the readers of the blog. I really appreciate the like-minded interaction that blogging brings.

So I have decided to keep this post light-hearted – in these times of “holiday” – with a topical early “Friday Funny”: a suggestion for an alternative to the sacred turkey maybe ;-)

So: Happy Thanksgiving to everybody! Maybe some related recommended reading for Thanksgiving weekend:

The Black Swan – Nasim Taleb
Taleb re-writes the rules of risk. An excellent perspective on conventionally accepted concepts

Look up on Amazon US | CA | UK
The (mis)behavior of Markets – Benoit Mandelbrot
A fractal view of Risk, Ruin and Reward

Look up on Amazon US | CA | UK
Fooled by Randomness – Nasim Taleb
The hidden role of Chance in Life and the Markets
–No review/summary yet–
Look up on Amazon US | CA | UK

I really enjoyed reading the three of them! And I am sure you would get a good time picking up any one of them.

PS: and for our friends and readers who want to learn more on Thanksgiving, here is the wikipedia link with a concise introduction and the US-specific or Canada-specific versions.
