Every time I read about Black Swan events I smile and remember a visit a few years ago to Meetung in Victoria’s Gippsland, where almost every bird on the lakes was a Black Swan. Thousands upon noisy thousands of them... It’s an interesting concept. Wall Street trader turned finance guru Nassim Nicholas Taleb was basically stating in his book “The Black Swan: the Impact of the Highly Improbable” that you have to assume events are going to happen that you entirely failed to prepare for.
