Albert-Laszlo was waaaaaaay ahead in determining tail events consistent w/statistics described *ahead* of time --such as cascading failures leading to power outages. I recall the power failure in NY in 2003. You must take him seriously.

His book, The Formula, is a pretty good one. Also I loved this one "Why Information Grows" by one of his students Cesar Hidalgo.

I get a loss of taste and smell with every cold I get. This trend toward cowardice knows no limits. Jump when you see a stick, it could be a snake, duck for cover with every mosquito, it could have malaria, every shadow is a wolf. Not one of you have insinuated man-man virus.

Better to mistake a stick for a snake than a snake for a stick. That's the gist of precautionary principle.
