Naona Nassim Taleb anatafuta umaarufu. Can you be this lucky jamani? $ 50 Billion fortune imekuwa build based on luck alone? Mathematicians au wazee wa Probability naomba jibu.

Is Warren Buffett really the genius so many say he is? ‘Black Swan' author Nassim Taleb has his doubts.
'Black Swan' Author Nassim Taleb: Warren Buffett May Just Be Lucky

Nassim Taleb says there isn't enough evidence to show that Warren Buffett's skill, and not his good luck, is responsible for the billionaire's enormous investing success over the decades.
Taleb is the author who gained fame and fortune writing about 'Black Swans' and the impact of other improbable events ahead of the subprime mortgage market's collapse.
In an "interrogation" interview that starts in the online magazine ai5000 and is continoed on its websit... Taleb is quoted as saying:
"I don't want to spend too much time on Buffett. George Soros has 2 million times more statistical evidence that his results are not chance than Buffett does. Soros is vastly more robust. I am not saying Buffett doesn't have skill-I'm just saying we don't have enough evidence to say Buffett isn't doing it by chance."

An expanded paperback edition of Taleb's Black Swan is scheduled for release in May.
When the original version was published in 2007, Bloomberg Magazine summarized its message as, "We're all blind to rare events and routinely fool ourselves into believing we can predict risks and
Ni vyema kuwa na bahati halafu unakuwa Billionaire kuliko kuwa smart with nothing!.

I think this guy is losing his mind for really or else hajafanya research yake abot Warren Buffet...Keep in mind Warren Buffett ametengeneza $ 50 billion kwa kununua na kuuza stocks. Hana business nyingine wala nini...... Anasema alijaribu kumiliki gas station ambayo ilikuwa his first business na akapata hasara...... Ndo maana akahamia kwenye stocks....... So yeye ana invest kwenye business za watu. ..........He never created his own business or company. Just buying and selling stocks....je na hapo utasema the guy amekuwa lucky tuuu?...

I know how hard it to be lucky and successfully! ...Yaani Ms. Market here always do something to prove everybody wrong. Yaani unakuta ukinunua stock inashuka. Ukiuza inapanda. Yaani hadi unafikiri stock inakuangalia wewe move yako....but way to be sucessfull as Warren never back down/give up!....

Binti Maringo wewe umesoma "The Snowball", unafikiri bahati ile?

Jamaa kaanza zamani sana, kanza enterpreneurial spirit in his early teens wakati anauza magazeti, akawa consinstent mpaka leo. They say when skills meet opportunity good luck happens.

Bahati yake kuzaliwa Marekani na kuzaliwa mweupe katika middle class America na kuzaliwa muda aliozaliwa, the rest ni juhudi zake.

Binti:
Mi sio mathematician, lakini ukiangalia historia ya Buffet na Soros, utaona yakwamba Soros umeshafanya transactions nyingi sana, akilinganishwa na Buffet.

If you toss a coin 100,000 times and get heads, chances are that the coin is loaded. If you toss it 10 times and get heads, that is chance (luck). Notice that Taleb is not saying that Buffet is just lucky. He is saying that he cannot prove that Buffet is NOT just lucky.
Mathematicians au wazee wa Probability naomba jibu.

Buffet investing style for the most part is very different from the mainstream investing. When he invests he does it big time and get fully involved with the stock/company's financials and even in making major decisions.
Luck plays role in every aspect of life but Buffet cannot be classified as just lucky-he's the oracle.

Kilanga,K-u-l-i and Mgeni wa Dunia...Ndiyo maana nilikuwa na mawazo tofauti with Nassim Taleb...with Luck of evidence on Wrren Buffet....the guy has skills na pia he is lucky let lone be....Mambo ya stock bana hayana formular kabisa ni kama gambling you can either win or lose it...so unafanya at your own risk with that said huwezi kusema he is luck dude got skills and top of that smart thinker....

Kiranga unajua nini hata sisi waafrica tupo smart ila sema tumatawaliwa sana na zile mentality kuwa white people are smart than us....i think wakati ule wa ukoloni na kuchukuliwa kuwa slaves kumetupumbaza sana tuu!.....

Binti - sawa sawa ulivyosema kama kuweka pesa kwenye stock ni kamari. Katika historia ya Stock market watu wawili tu waweweza kutajirika kwa ku-invest kwenye individual stock alone. Mmoja wapo ni Buffet na tunaelewa ni kwa nini. Hata yeye mwenyewe amesema watu wa kawaida wa-invest kwenye index funds angalau itawarudishia 8%.

Watu weupe/weusi/wekundu kuwa smart kuliko wengine ni tautalogy.
