I NTRODUCTION «The central idea of this book concerns our blindness with respect to randomness, particularly the large deviations: Why do we, scientists or nonscientists, hotshots or regular Joes, tend to see the pennies instead of the dollars? Why do we keep focusing on the minutiae, not the possible significant large events, in spite of the obvious evidence of their huge influence?» Nassim Nicolas Taleb «The Black Swan. The Impact of The Highly Improbable» 2
P ROBLEM We will model economic fluctuations representing them as a flows of events of two types: Q -event reflects the normal mode of an economy; R -event is responsible for a crisis. The number of events in each time interval has a Poisson distribution with constant intensity. is the intensity of the flow of regular events Q. is the intensity of the flow of crisis events R. >> holds (that is, Q -type events are far more frequent than the R -type events). 3
E XAMPLE Let q 2 =1. How often the player can fail to identify regular event to have still positive or at least zero average gain E ( Z )? 24 =>
A PPLICATION TO REAL DATA We consider a stock exchange and events Q and R which describe a business as usual and a crisis, respectively. The unknown event X can be interpreted as a signal received, e.g. by an economic analyst or by a broker, about the changes of the economy that helps him to decide whether the economy is in a normal mode or in a crisis.

P ARAMETERS FOR S&P 500 In fact, it is enough to identify regular Q -events in half of the cases to ensure a positive outcome of the game. E(Z) 0 Probability of incorrect identification of crisis R-event Probability of incorrect recognition of regular Q-event
P ARAMETERS FOR S&P 500 Indeed, if we choose the horizon of 1 year and the error probability for events Q and R being q 1 = 0.46, q 2 =1 (i.e. even when crises are not at all correctly identified), the expected gain is still positive (although almost zero). 29
C ONCLUSION We showed in a very simple model that with a small reward for the correct (with probability slightly higher than ½) identification of the routine events (and if crisis events are identified with very low probability) the average player's gain will be positive. In other words, players do not need to play more sophisticated games, trying to identify crises events in advance.
C ONCLUSION We considered new models adding rewards for successful behavior as increases in gain and as increases in the probability of correct identification, which means that the player can learn from his past actions and accumulate experience. Both of these models allows the player to enlarge the total gain and to make more mistakes, because he/she can get more in the sequence of correctly identified events. 37
