Antifragile: Things That Gain from Disorder

Monday, March 18, 2013 8:00 AM to 9:15 AM

Description

Human bones get stronger when subjected to stress and tension, and rumors or riots intensify when someone tries to repress them. Why do many things in life benefit from stress, disorder, volatility, and turmoil?

What Professor Taleb has identified and calls "antifragile" is that category of things that not only gain from chaos but need it in order to survive and flourish. How is this possible?

Speaker: Nassim Nicholas Taleb
