It’s likely the European Union will disintegrate. That’s the opinion of Nassim Nicholas Taleb, author of Antifragile: Things that Gain from Disorder, and The Black Swan. The author, in an interview with CNBC, said he believes the EU is doomed to fail. However, countries will be able to successfully work together through free trade agreements and economic zones. Taleb has long been a critic of the European Union and its bureaucracy.
