JIM ROGERS: "Listen, we have to face reality, George. If you don't face reality and you sit there and twiddle along and believe Mr Bernanke that everything is OK, you are going to get hit by a two-by-four and it's going to hurt very, very, very badly, so I would urge you to be prepared."
Of course most people want to believe Ben "the-subprime-crisis-will-be-contained" Bernanke, no matter how many times he's been wrong prior. Somehow, this time, although it has never happened before, the gum'mint will "step in" and not make things worse. Slow learning and laziness will kill you.
