The Role of Entrepreneurs in Antifragility at Society Level
Jos Nieland, Teacher, Netherlands, SIG Leader
Taleb adores entrepreneurs. They take a lot of downside risk bad for themselves (a lot of them will default), but on a macro level entrepreneurs are very good for society. Taleb compares entrepreneurs with soldiers who have in fact only downside risk and proposes a National Entrepreneurs Day to honour them with the following message:
“Most of you will fail, disrespected, impoverished, but we are grateful for the risk you are taking and the sacrifices you are making for the sake of economic growth of the planet and pulling others out of poverty. You are at the source of our antifragility. Our nation thanks you.”
What do you think... a good idea?...
