Predicting financials crisises? Easy says Didier Sornette

Swiss academic Didier Sornette is a brave man. At the recently set up Financial Crisis Observatory his team is making bold, and alarmingly accurate, predictions about asset bubbles. GFC? Fall in Chinese equities? They accurately predicted both. I'm yet to fully explore his methods but this recent TED talk makes for fascinating viewing. Oh, and I enjoy anyone willing to take on Taleb. Enjoy.
