The FU viris is spreading around the world...Japan, Russia, China, France, England,

The economy faces an "emergency situation," Finance Minister Yuval Steinitz warned on Monday, while urging lawmakers to support the government's draft budget, as Israeli exports plunged 32 percent in the first four months of this year.

It is good most of you don't know.....otherwise you might be like Nassim and having trouble sleeping at night.

But what does Mr. Taleb know????

There are other factors besides economics involved with Israels export market. There are many boycotts of Israel going on in countries where that is not illegal.

Great Talib video! He is going to turn into the Incredible Hulk, or at least start handing out spankings to the blonde and asian. Do you know when this was recorded?

Well, I bet the Georgians are boycotting Russia, and some Koreans might still be boycotting Japan. I wasn't arguing against your thesis necessarily, but stating Israel is a poor example.

Dark....I think in the last few days......and please don't take my response the wrong is just that practically every nation in the world is experiencing significant double digit declines in EXPORTS and IMPORTS..... is why a DEPRESSION is inevitable....and probably already here.... as it is simply a 10% decline in GDP.

Actually, it appears the Taleb video is from last Fall.

But the issues he is discussing seem to be more relevant today.

Thanks for the first video it was very interesting.  Probably the best comment was one of the grand old men of science simply saying that anything is possible and we can't know the future.  For 20 years or so we seemed to think we knew the future.  Now almost anything seems to be on the possible.
