Description - Blindside by Francis Fukuyama

As recent history vividly illustrates, several kinds of unanticipated scenarios-but particularly those of low probability and high impact-have the potential to escalate into systemic crises. Among the most obvious examples are the September 11 attacks, Hurricane Katrina, and the Asian tsunami. Anticipating and managing low-probability, high-impact events is a critically important challenge to today's policymakers but they lack the necessary tools. Developing such capacity and instruments, including the mindset necessary for "thinking the unthinkable," is the focus of Blindside.
