Nassim Taleb @nntaleb is a classic snake oil salesman. He states blindingly obvious non-maxims for the deranged and ill-informed at CNBC and Davos who lap it up as a cure for their own stupidity. I always thought Nassim knew he was sending up these snarky idiots and it was fun watching him take the piss, but it appears as though he actually believes in the nonsense he spews – based on his attack on Josh Brown @reformdbroker
I hope Nassim quickly recants and goes back to being an ‘intellectual’ clown for the brain dead on CNBC. God help us if Taleb actually thinks he’s adding anything to the public discourse other than half-baked bromides, platitudes and drivel.
Sadly, in today’s America, full of 9/11-crybabies and media whores, bullying by half-wits works.
Josh has amended his post… Too bad.
