IYI = Technocrat

We need  more people like Nassim. Despite his superior intelligence,  he does not have the hubris of being a technocrat.

“Today, about eight days after everything the IYI* class knows fell apart, they are starting to realize what happened.


Pretty much everything forecasters, subforecasters, superforecasters, political “scientists”, psychologists, intellectuals, campaigners, “consultants”, big data scientists, everything they know is now shown to be a hoax.

My mischievous dream of putting a rat inside someone’s shirt (in The Black Swan) is suddenly coming true.

IYI: Intellectual yet Idiot”
