Black swan MH17

Catastrophe of MH-17 is a classic example of event which in expert circles is often called a black swan. This term became known due to Nassim Taleb the author of the best seller Black swan: effect of unpredictable. Black swans are unpredictable events which have the extraordinarily powerful effect with the protracted and usually negative consequences. Main reason for their unpredictability is, above all things, in a human confidence that this can never happen.
