I caught Maggie Mahar on K&C last nite (never heard of her before). She was discussing her new book: Bull: A History of the Boom, 1982-1999: What drove the Breakneck Market–and What Every Investor Needs to Know About Financial Cycles.
Her thesis is right up my alley — its a fascinating study of longer term bull and bear cyles. Her concepts are very similar to the study “Looking at the Very Very Long Term” we did earlier this Fall.
Good stuff; I haven’t read Mahar’s book yet, but from what I skimmed of it, its looks like a keeper . . .
Please use the comments to demonstrate your own ignorance, unfamiliarity with empirical data and lack of respect for scientific knowledge. Be sure to create straw men and argue against things I have neither said nor implied. If you could repeat previously discredited memes or steer the conversation into irrelevant, off topic discussions, it would be appreciated. Lastly, kindly forgo all civility in your discourse . . . you are, after all, anonymous.
