    To understand the stock market, don’t study business. Study psychology focused on herd mentality. Investors are like the big flock of seagulls from Finding Nemo.

    I’m not saying it will happen, but the stock market could fall 656 points or more in about 53 minutes (and actually end up going down for at least the 9th straight trading session).

    So, if Paulson would have gone forward with The British Plan from the offset, instead of his cockamamy trust-me-with-$700B-to-buy-toxic-assets-with-no-review one, how many weeks wouldn’t have been wasted? How many trillions of dollars in evaporated market cap saved?
