Hi Friends, Just came to know about this article on Livemint.com about the Lindy Effect and Fiat Linea. This is not a technical article but an interesting one and it puts the theory of the Lindy Effect as "THE OLDER A THING IS, THE BETTER THE CHANCE OF ITS SURVIVAL". The author is wondering whether to sell his 4 year old Linea and go for Maruti Breeza http://mintonsunday.livemint.com/ne...he-chance-of-its-survival/1.0.1077264680.html The excerpt from the article "The answer lies in a problem called the “Lindy Effect”, an idea first posited by Benoit Mandelbrot, a French and American mathematician of Polish origin. The controversial and audacious Nassim Nicholas Taleb put this theory in a way a layman may understand in his best-selling Antifragile: “If a book has been in print for 40 years, I can expect it to be in print for another 40 years. But, and that is the main difference, if it survives another decade, then it will be expected to be in print another 50 years. This, simply, as a rule, tells you why things that have been around for a long time are not ‘aging’ like persons, but ‘aging’ in reverse. Every year that passes without extinction doubles the additional life expectancy. This is an indicator of some robustness. The robustness of an item is proportional to its life!” So friends, stick to our very own Fiats. Old is indeed Gold.
