    An interesting observation from Nassim Taleb. As markets get more volatile and subject to external shocks (like QE), the most successful money managers end up being successful because they’re lucky, rather than because they’re particularly good. Given a random distribution of money managers, some of them will end up picking the right strategy to maximize profit from a given external shock.

    The corollary is that the money managers that are successful today are unlikely to be successful in the future, because they’re not likely to get that lucky again.
