Mr. Blackswan Goes to Zuccotti Park

Quick post to share this very informative video from Bloomberg at Farnam Street Blog.  Despite my goofy title implying otherwise,  I think Mr. Blackswan is prudently circumspect about the occupiers.

Still looking for a citation for the Roman engineer spending the night under the bridge. Will post this once someone finds it.

Scent of a Human Piranha

What does this title mean?
You will see at the end of this post. Also, Michael Lewis  has a new book out, Boomerang: Travels in the New Third World
 out. Yes,  I know he didn't make up that phrase, Tom Wolfe 

This post has something for everyone!
