10 Black Swans

The amusing thing about this (to me anyway) is that it is to a certain extent emblematic of markets' overwhelming tendency to misprice the tails. These pieces almost read like a guide to the unthinkable - "here's what happens if everything just goes to complete sh*t"...

  1. All these black swans are in the wrong direction,,indicative of everyone’s presence on the same side of the boat, the real black swans would be on the other direction

  2. I hope we can get through the next 4 years without the US economy crashing and new wars started.

    • “We will reinforce old alliances and form new ones — and unite the civilized world against radical Islamic terrorism, which we will eradicate completely from the face of the Earth.” — President Trump in is Inaugural speech.

      Obviously, that means war. If it means that Islam becomes the enemy, then it means one huge mess.

      “I watched when the World Trade Center came tumbling down,” the Republican presidential candidate said at a Nov. 21 rally in Birmingham, Ala. “And I watched in Jersey City, N.J., where thousands and thousands of people were cheering as that building was coming down. Thousands of people were cheering.”

      Never forget those non-existent Muslims, that only live in the imaginations of Trump and Breitbart followers. If Trump starts to persecute American Muslims, then we will have an even bigger mess.

    By definition a financial black swan is unexpected, hence a predicted black swan is an oxymoron. ‘Nuff said. Credit Suisse should perhaps read Nassim Nicholas Taleb’s work first!
