Is Noah Smith of Bloomberg Just a Troll who does not Understand Troll Following?

I caught this write-up from Nassim Nicholas Taleb. My first thought? That name sounds familiar…

This same guy Taleb rips… I also dealt with him a few years back over his severely misinformed take on trend following.

I responded on my podcast here. Small world for Noah Smith Bloomberg.

Noah Smith: No Thanks

Feedback in:

Dear Mr. Covel,

I want to congratulate you for arranging an interview with Robert Aumann. You are very skilled at arranging interviews with prominent people in the fields of economics and finance and I am looking forward to listening to your future podcasts.

After listening to your podcast titled, Misinformed View on Trend Following, I was not surprised that Noah Smith [ep. 266] raised your ire. You are another person in a long line of individuals who have been jolted by Smith’s writings on economics and finance. He is very skilled at writing columns that cause the people who he criticizes to respond vehemently. To give you an idea of how many people and websites have responded strongly to Smith’s writings, I will list some of them for you: Peter Schiff, Mike Shedlock, Robert Murphy, Gary North, ZeroHedge.com, Acting-Man.com, and TheDailyBell.com. Schiff recently interviewed Smith on his radio show. If you listen to the interview, you will hear that Smith is not afraid to debate a person that he criticizes and he is not rude. I encourage you to use your skill at arranging interviews to convince Smith to be interviewed by you. I believe that you will find him troublesome but you will learn that he is an intellectually honest person who simply wants to know what drives financial markets and the economy.

Sincerely,

[Name]

Noah Smith is a petulant brat. Next.
