If you had only two news articles to read this week (via Reddit)...

...I would recommend "Ten principles for a Black Swan-proof world" by Nicolas Taleb (best known for his book "The Black Swan: The Impact of the Highly Improbable" about underpricing risk) and The dark side of Dubai. This last one is absolutely surreal. Make sure you read it at least through "The Lifestyle" chapter. It is really, truly, absolutely unbelievable.

The FT.com article is rubbish.

If you know what money and finance are you'd think the same.

I sure as hell don't know what money and finance are. Just like the people on Wall Street :-)...
