The link is here. I’ll post the video later.

Update: Video is here. I was on very, very briefly at 21:00. I asked him how government could pass more anti-fragile laws that did merely react to the most recent disaster (Black Swan), but rather be resillient to the next disaster. His answer, echoing what he wrote in his book, was to be more like Switzerland, and have a more decentralized system of government, that should be bottom up, rather than top down. He did note that this was how America originally was.

Yay Federalism! I only got one question in, so that’s it.
