Nassim Taleb is going to open The Big Picture Conference: Capitalism After Crisis with his vision of what went wrong with the financial system and what needs to be done to create a new one that is no longer fragile and subject to the kind of shock we’re still living through.
Capitalism 2.0: Building a Robust Economic System will outline Taleb’s vision of why the highly efficient world financial system is already a form of leverage that makes debt leverage for speculation so dangerous.
To join Nassim Taleb, author of The Black Swan, and gain his insight into the future of the world economy and the role of markets within it, register for the The Big Picture Conference here.
