Nassim Nicholas Taleb has a lot to say about volatility and the unexpected. In The Black Swan: The Impact of the Highly Improbable, he outlines a problem; in Antifragile: Things That Gain from Disorder, he offers a solution to that problem.
His solution is simple: to be antifragile, things must benefit from disorder. These are things that gain from uncertainty and disrepair--something many people would say is impossible. How can one benefit from volatility? Taleb's answer will surprise you.
