Nassim Taleb Warns Of Catastrophe

My view:

Taleb hits the nail on the head in this interview. 

The black swan is growing government debt - even the fact that government has any debt at all!

Early and medieval societies took a dim view of debt in general and interest charged on debt in particular.

Perhaps we are seeing the beginnings of a shift in attitude toward debt?

The very elderly now are the only people with first hand experience of the Great Depression.

A former neighbor of mine certainly had the view "don't get into debt!" after the trauma of farm life in the 1930s as a boy.

One of my risk indicators is giving some early signals that risk may soon "turn off".  Perhaps the bull market in stocks and bonds is running out of steam?

I will share this once some tangible confirmation is received.
