On Oct. 11, Nassim Taleb stated: "Attempts to remedy flaws that led to the Lehman crisis in 2008 have only rendered the system more fragile and vulnerable to further crises."

On Oct. 14, Nassim Taleb discussed risks in Syria and Saudia Arabia as well as keys to fixing the fragility in the American system through locally funding government versus the traditional national approach.

See the video here.

Nassim Taleb is the author of "Fooled by Randomness," "Black Swan" and "Anti-Fragile." Another fascinating video that comes to mind is a TED talk relating to mayors ruling the world and is worth a watch.
