We heeded his advice. Fast forward to 2008 and we're in a similar crisis. This time it's one that's related to debt and the worldwide financial system. I wonder what my old boss would say about current events? Could he have predicted today's scenario? Maybe, maybe not!
There's an interesting article in the Huffington Post today identifying individuals that "...issued warnings about the fragility of the financial system and sounded the alarm about an impending collapse before it all came crashing down"
It's scary to read how each (scholars, investors, politicians, etc...) precisely predicted current events and outcomes.
Here are the names:
- Nouriel Roubini - NYU Professor
- Warren Buffett - Investor
- Nassim Nicholas Taleb - Scholar
- Byron Dorgan - U.S. Senator
- Joseph Stiglitz - Nobel Prize winning economist
- Paul Krugman - Professor, NY Times Columnist that just won the Nobel Prize for Economics
Personally, I'm already looking at their work to improve my predictive skills.
