  2. LIVE from the NYPL: NASSIM TALEB & DANIEL KAHNEMAN | The New York Public Library

    How do we — as individuals and as communities — make decisions when faced with uncertainty, inexperience, lack of knowledge or chaos? Nassim N. Taleb and Nobel Prize winner Daniel Kahneman have both devoted their careers to explorations of the decision making process: Kahneman approaching it through psychological study; Taleb through a philosophical lens. Their groundbreaking work has profoundly impacted our understanding of the decision making process today while raising new questions about how decisions are made in a world that is increasingly more difficult to comprehend.

    Nassim N. Taleb is a former derivatives trader who became a scholar and philosophical essayist in 2006. Although he is currently Distinguished Professor of Risk Engineering at New York University’s Polytechnic Institute, he self-funds his research and operates in the manner of independent scholars. Taleb is the author of The Black Swan (2007–2010) and Antifragile (2012). His work focuses on decision making under uncertainty, as well as technical and philosophical problems with probability and metaprobability; in other words, "what to do in a world we don’t understand."

    Daniel Kahneman is a Nobel Prize laureate and the Eugene Higgins Professor of Psychology and Professor of Public Affairs Emeritus at Princeton University, and a founding partner of The Greatest Good, a consulting firm. Over a wide-ranging research career he has been involved in many fields of psychology, ranging from vision and attention to the study of juror behavior and the measurement of well-being. He is best known for his contributions, with his late colleague Amos Tversky, to the psychology of judgment and decision making, which inspired the development of behavioral economics. This work earned Kahneman the Nobel Prize in Economics in 2002. Kahneman’s recent book Thinking, Fast and Slow is a best-seller in several countries.

  3. Nassim Taleb and Daniel Kahneman: Reflection on a Crisis


    Nobel laureate Daniel Kahneman examines Alan Greenspan’s financial framework in light of the current economic crisis. ——- Author Nassim Taleb and Nobel Laureate Daniel Kahneman discuss the intricacies of the financial crisis and its far-reaching influence. Looking forward, they offer proposals to remedy the situation and prevent it from ever recurring. - DLD 2009 Daniel Kahneman is Eugene Higgins Professor of Psychology and Professor of Public Affairs Emeritus at Princeton University. He was educated at The Hebrew University in Jerusalem and obtained his PhD in Berkeley. He taught at The Hebrew University, at the University of British Columbia and at Berkeley, and joined the Princeton faculty in 1994, retiring in 2007. He is best known for his contributions, with his late colleague Amos Tversky, to the psychology of judgment and decision making, which inspired the development of behavioral economics in general, and of behavioral finance in particular. This work earned Kahneman the Nobel Prize in Economics in 2002 and many other honors, including the 2006 Thomas Schelling Award given by the Kennedy School at Harvard "to an individual whose remarkable intellectual work has had a transformative impact on public policy", and the Outstanding Lifetime Contribution Award of the American Psychological Association in 2007.

    The President of the Aspen Institute, Walter Isaacson joined by Niall Ferguson, author of The Ascent of Money , Indra Nooyi, Chairman and CEO of PepsiCo, Eric Schmidt, Chief Executive Officer of Google, and Nassim Taleb, scholar of randomness and risk and author of The Black Swan together will examine:

    What will the American economic system look like in the months and years ahead?

    Who are the innovators currently shaping the future?

    What will be the role of business in that future?

  5. Taleb on Skin in the Game

    Nassim Taleb of NYU-Poly talks with EconTalk host Russ Roberts about his recent paper (with Constantine Sandis) on the morality and effectiveness of "skin in the game." When decision makers have skin in the game—when they share in the costs and benefits of their decisions that might affect others—they are more likely to make prudent decisions than in cases where decision-makers can impose costs on others. Taleb sees skin in the game as not just a useful policy concept but a moral imperative. The conversation closes with some observations on the power of expected value for evaluating predictions along with Taleb’s thoughts on economists who rarely have skin in the game when they make forecasts or take policy positions.
