It seems for Nassim "Black Swan" Taleb, less is more. After perfectly summarizing the circus that is the American Presidential election camapaign in 17 words last week, he appears to have gone one step further with a two-word summation: "No SHillary."
Last week's epic Facebook rant...
"The *establishment* composed of journos, BS-Vending talking heads with well-formulated verbs, bureaucrato-cronies, lobbyists-in training, New Yorker-reading semi-intellectuals, image-conscious empty suits, Washington rent-seekers and other "well thinking" members of the vocal elites are not getting the point about what is happening and the sterility of their arguments."
To which he appended the following 17 perfectly succinct words:
"People are not voting for Trump (or Sanders). People are just voting, finally, to destroy the establishment."
And today, taking to Twitter, he offered some sane support to Donald Trump:
Reading Trump all I see is protect your downside (unknown) risks. What's behind the bluster is Fat Tony compatible. pic.twitter.com/6OyroXQ8qc— NassimNicholasTaleb (@nntaleb) March 26, 2016
But followed that up with:
"I far prefer Bernie Sanders to Trump but absolutely no Hillary."
To which he appended, so succinctly:
Which seems to sum it all up perfectly.
