I debated starting a new thread, but no; who would click on a thread titled 'Po nan Jwèt la: Asymétri Kache nan Lavi Chak Jou'

Po nan Jwèt la: Asymétri Kache nan Lavi Chak Jou

Posted by Jay Manifold on March 16th, 2018 (All posts by Jay Manifold)

Taleb, Nassim N., Skin in the Game: Hidden Asymmetries in Daily Life. New York City: Random House, 2018.

NB: precisely because I regard Taleb as a national treasure and have considerable respect for his work, I am not going to pull punches here. I get to do this because I have … skin in the game, and not only in Haiti[1] (where I wrote this post over the past ten days, thus the Kreyòl Ayisyen title), but in a couple-three moderately hair-raising situations back in KC, which I will relate when appropriate. Which might be never; see Matthew 6:1-4 (cited by Taleb on page 186).

Getting this out of the way—buy this book, read it, and recommend it to others. I say this very much irrespective of what might be called the Manifold-Taleb delta, which is not altogether trivial, as I will explain in some detail—again, as a sign of respect—below. Immediately below, in fact.

So you are fed up starting threads that get posts only from you. Poor Andy. :(

But explain how your post is about global warming and climate change? :roll:

As for starting threads that get input from me and no one else.

I post items that interest me, I don't post items to stir up the mob (troll).

Example; Reactionary Prophet, a bit from Niel Ferguson's Civilization that shows the difference between Jefferson and Burke, Jefferson was all for the Voltaire/Rousseau model early on during the French Revolution, Burke was against it. Burke was right.

Thank God Jefferson wasn't around for the drafting of our Constitution.

PS. I do read your threads, actually every thread. You are a good chap, old boy. ;)
PPS. I promise to contribute, if you post something interesting.
