  1. The Markets

    Comments Off on The Markets

    You really need to take predictions with a grain of salt. Consider these esteemed opinions: 

    • “I think there is a world market for maybe five computers.” Thomas Watson, Chairman, IBM, 1943
    • “Who wants to hear actors talk?” H. M. Warner, Founder, Warner Brothers, 1927
    • “Everything that can be invented has been invented.” Charles Duell, Commissioner, U.S. Office of Patents, 1899 

    It’s important to remember the fallibility of experts as we head toward a new year and pundits begin pontificating about the events of the past and predicting what may be ahead.
