REFLECTIONS ON A CRISIS Daniel Kahneman & Nassim Taleb, Moderated by John Brockman

Fascinating. Take a look at the video.

Edge: REFLECTIONS ON A CRISIS Daniel Kahneman & Nassim Taleb, Moderated by John Brockman:
"View the complete 1-hour HD streaming video of the Edge event that took place at Hubert Burda Media's Digital Life Design Conference (DLD) in Munich on January 27th as the greatest living psychologist and the foremost scholar of extreme events discuss hindsight biases, the illusion of patterns, perception of risk, and denial.....


Two men sitting on the stage. Left. Daniel Kahneman, 74, bright-eyed, Nobel Prize winner. Right Nassim Taleb, 49, former Wall Street banker, best-selling author. Both speak on the future of Digital Life Design Conference (DLD) in Munich on the financial crisis, about the beginning--mainly they talk about people. They say it is due to human nature, that the crisis has broken out. And they choose harsh words in discussing the scale of the disaster."

Thanks to Mark for this one! He used it in class today. Thanks for sharing!
