Black Swan: Refers to a random unforeseen event which has a great influence and whose significance is only understood after it has happened.  The event is then rationalized by people in power who claim it should have been predictable, despite the fact that if it was possible for that event to be anticipated, it would have been.  

 

The metaphor is derived from the early belief that swans of that color did not exist. It is thus representative of the prevailing attitude that these events were foreseeable after studying the warning signals of them in hindsight. The word 'black' also denotes the negative consequences associated with the majority black swan events.
