Publicity-seeking schmegegge

Nassim Nicholas Taleb says investors should sue the Nobel Committee for awarding prizes to economists he thinks contributed to the financial crisis (as if they forced people to use Modern Portfolio Theory), and that if no one else does, he'll sue the committee himself. Maybe I should've contacted my lawyer to sue Taleb rather than just review his overblown book.

Reading Taleb's "Black Swan" was an exercise in patience - wading through piles of ego only to find his miniature, malnourished pony.

It sounds like we may have the start of a class action suit.
