Very Taleb–esque writing. Very entertaining.
Tells us there are lots of stupid people, with a really precise definition of stupid; those folks that would cut their nose to spite their face, or like the book would say, stupid folks are they who would cause losses to other folks, even when they stand to gain nothing or possibly, ever incur losses!
It reads like an erudite rant. But unlike Taleb, ends with no advice or suggestion.
Let me offer one then, in the form of one of those old folksy grandma quotes,
“What’s the sense of wrestling with a pig?
You both get all over muddy … and the pig likes it.”
