Just finished the Black Swan by @nntalb. All of my previous education to this point has been put into question.

Have I found myself participating in the ludic fallacy? Have I been replacing theoretical models for reality?

As I am typing this I'm about to close down by internet browser and finish a finance assignment. Questions about the validity of the tools I am learning keep coming to my mind. According to Taleb the tools taught in most educational setting fall victim to the Ludic Fallacy.

How am I able to reconcile these accepted educational tools and methods with the problem of the Black Swan?

Is it even possible?
