You can quote us on that, Dear Reader.
Just when you thought things couldn't get better… guess what?
They don't. They go dark as a dungeon.
Antidote to Optimism
Our task today is to show that however wonderful things may appear in today's markets and economy, they may not be all that great.
We put our backs into this grim work neither for love nor for money, but simply out of a sense of stern duty.
If not us, who? If not now, when?
Someone must put forward an antidote to the optimism now raging through markets around the world.
Someone must make the case for cynicism, suspicion, and mockery.
Someone must take the other side of the trade.
And so… the work, like shucking oysters on a cold day, falls to us. We open them up… hoping to find a pearl.
