Lebanese-American essayist, scholar, statistician and risk analyst Nassim Nicholas Taleb (1960-) considers elusive variables of problems of randomness, probability, and uncertainty in risk management.

First published 2001, months after the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks, Taleb drew on his experience as an options trader to argue that stock-market projections are worthless as no one has any idea where prices are headed, and it is only after prices unexpectedly rise or fall that "experts" engage in specious retroactive narratives of justification., or re-wrting history.
