Hey Miscreants: Do You Get It Now?
OK. Points taken. Most of your criticisms over the past three years have been gibberish, but maybe some were not. Who knows. At this point, though, there is a question on my mind:. Everything that is happening now in the capital markets is precisely what I thought would happen. It is precisely what I said would happen. It is precisely what I have been running around for 2+ years warning people was going to happen. Now, you might say, it is happening for different reasons than I said, to which I would respond that: a) maybe; b) you don't know that; c) it certainly shares features of the problem of which I was warning; d) it may be just a facet of the same problem; and e) they are clearly linked.
Anyway, all that said, here is the question: if you had become convinced two years ago that what was going to happen would be the disaster we now see emerging in our capital market, would you have tried to do something about it? Or would you have said, "Not my job"?
