As do I (hope that I make a profit, that is). Any reasonable person could care less if GM makes another cent (and would likely prefer them to fail)...ummm...unless you hitched your horse to their carriage (sorry, mate)...but, then, I have to ask: why haven't you indexed? Here's the creator of the index fund on...well...index funds. This stuff isn't rocket surgery. Wanna listen to a dude who's prescience gains him some credibility? Check out Taleb in Black Swan or Fooled by Randomness. Note: podcasts w/ Taleb also available on econtalk.
HAHAHAHAHAHA...."A slump in sales forced GM to file for bankruptcy protection this week."
Subtext: "...and when we say 'slump,' we mean, 'damn, this has been like a drunk monkey taking the bar exam.'"
Say it with me, folks: Debacle. It really is atrocious that the BBC didn't say anything about the obvious tomfoolery and mismanagement that has been part and parcel of GM for...oh....years, nor the governmental coddling that allowed this sort of atrocity.
