Taleb has been a practitioner of mathematical finance a hedge fund manager,    and a derivatives trader. Taleb considers himself less a businessman than an epistemologist of randomnessand says Nicholas ii research he used trading to attain independence and freedom from authority.
His business model has been to safeguard investors against crises while reaping rewards from rare events, and thus his investment management career has included several jackpots followed by lengthy dry spells.
Taleb reportedly became financially independent after the crash of  and was successful during the Nasdaq dive in  as well as the financial crisis that began in a development which he attributed to the mismatch between reality and statistical distributions used in finance.
Following this crisis, Taleb became an activist for what he called a "black swan robust society". Frey and Raphael Douadyformed the Real World Risk Institute "to build the principles and methodology for what we call real-world rigor, in decision making and codify a clear-cut way to approach… to provide executive education courses and issue two certificates.
It was originally published in November including only the first four books. The fifth book has not been included in a separate release of the series. His first non-technical book, Fooled by Randomnessabout the underestimation of the role of randomness in life, published inwas selected by Fortune as one of the smartest 75 books known.
It spent 36 weeks on the New York Times Bestseller list 17 as hardcover and 19 weeks as paperback,   and was translated into 31 languages. Things That Gain from Disorder —was published in November Hidden Asymmetries in Daily Life —was published in February It has not yet been included in an updated release of Incerto.
Taleb's non-technical writing style has been described as mixing a narrative, often semi-autobiographical style with short philosophical tales and historical and scientific commentary. Taleb disagrees with Platonic i.
Based on these and other constructions, he advocates for what he calls a "black swan robust" society, meaning a society that can withstand difficult-to-predict events. He argues that knowledge and technology are usually generated by what he calls " stochastic tinkering" rather than by top-down directed research,  : His argument centers on the idea that predictive models are based on Plato's Theory of Forms, gravitating towards mathematical purity and failing to take some key ideas into account, such as: Discussing the ludic fallacy in The Black Swan, he writes, "The dark side of the moon is harder to see; beaming light on it costs energy.
In the same way, beaming light on the unseen is costly, in both computational and mental effort. He states that statistics is fundamentally incomplete as a field, as it cannot predict the risk of rare events, a problem that is acute in proportion to the rarity of these events.
With the mathematician Raphael Douadyhe called the problem statistical undecidability Douady and Taleb, Taleb sees his main challenge as mapping his ideas of "robustification" and " antifragility ", that is, how to live and act in a world we do not understand and build robustness to black swan events.
Taleb introduced the idea of the "fourth quadrant" in the exposure domain. These are deemed by Taleb to be more robust to estimation errors. For instance, he suggests that investing money in 'medium risk' investments is pointless, because risk is difficult, if not impossible to compute.
His preferred strategy is to be both hyper-conservative and hyper-aggressive at the same time. An alternative suggestion is to engage in highly speculative bets with a limited downside. Taleb asserts that by adopting these strategies a portfolio can be "robust", that is, gain a positive exposure to black swan events while limiting losses suffered by such random events.Jul 17, · On July 17, , Russian Czar Nicholas II and his immediate family were executed by Bolsheviks in the cellar of Ipatiev House in Ekaterinburg, ending the Romanov dynasty.
