Ron Paul With Special Guest Nassim Taleb – Black Swans And Interventionistas

Ron Paul & Daniel McAdams, Ron Paul Liberty Report, Released on 5/19/17

Dr. Taleb, author of “The Black Swan,” takes apart our foreign and monetary policies. Why do neocons and mainstream media keep pushing war and conflict? They face zero risk. This is something new in history. Those who decide on interventionism overseas are never harmed by the interventions. Plus…are we headed for a market crash that makes 2008 look like a picnic? And if so, what will the aftermath look like?

Dr. Ron Paul is a physician and former twelve-term congressman from Texas who ran for president in 2008. He is the author of eight books, including the New York Times bestsellers The Revolution: A Manifesto and End The Fed. An unwavering defender of the US Constitution, Paul has been an advocate of sound money, personal liberty, free markets, and international peace throughout his political career and beyond. He is chairman of the FREE Foundation, founder of the Campaign for Liberty, and distinguished counselor to the Ludwig von Mises Institute. Dr. Paul recently started the Ron Paul Channel, an online broadcast alternative to the mainstream media. Ron’s most recent novel is Swords into Plowshares.

Nassim Taleb spent 20 years as a derivatives trader and, after closing 650,000 option transactions and examining 200,000 risk reports, he changed careers in 2006 to become a scholar and philosophical essayist. Taleb is currently Distinguished Professor of Risk Engineering at New York University’s Polytechnic Institute, but he self-funds his research and operates in the manner of independent scholars. He is the author of four novels, most notably The Black Swan and Antifragile: Things That Gain from Disorder. Taleb’s works focuses on decision making under opacity, as well as mathematical and philosophical problems with probability, in other words on “what to do in a world we don’t understand” as well as on the properties of systems that can handle disorder.
