Hong Kong/Berlin (25/11). Missing the obvious, The Black Elephant strikes again.
Joseph de Maistre, the French philosopher said, “Every nation gets the government it deserves”. Look at the UK, look at Trump and look at Hong Kong.
With the elections over both, the black swan floated away, and the Black Elephant trotted out of the city. Well for now, at least. But, what’s next for Hong Kong?
The famed book about Black Swans by Nassim Taleb, Hong Kong qualified for his Black Swan scenario. But before everyone celebrates having a yippee moment let’s reflect on round one before round two is gonged.
We still got the Black Elephant, the obvious monsters in the proverbial the room that goes ignored.
