Nassim Taleb: America Has Cancer But No One Has The Stones To Admit We Need Chemo

And on an even more serious note, for which you should brace yourselves, Taleb has announced he will not be going to Davos this year. Why? Because he’s sick of the name dropping fame whores in attendance who don’t know anything about debt, like he does. Black Swan will be making better use of his time “at home with my fireplace and notebook and library,” where he will fix our economy while less serious people– NT hates to name names but “Rouriel Noubini” he mouths– will be in Switzerland banging economist groupies.

    Vegas…Davos. Both 5 letter-towns, loaded with hookers when the big crowds show up. Davos is a high-priced Money Show from Vegas. Ever been to one of those? Listen to idiots from CNBC talking markets? That’s what Davos is like for NT. He’ll be revered sometime after he’s dead.
