Nassim Taleb's Mini Tutorial on 'Fat Tails' [Video]

Nassim Taleb, NYU professor and author of Fooled By Randomness, The Black Swan, and Antifragile, put up a quick 8 minute tutorial on "Fat Tails" on Youtube yesterday which you might find interesting (see below). He linked to http://www.fooledbyrandomness.com/FatTails.html on his Youtube post for more information.

This will feed into my next post on how highly improbable possibilities turn into highly probable possibilities.
