Um, Do-Over?

This is a pretty amazing montage of Peter Schiff being roasted on FOX by various blowhards (like Ben Stein) over the past couple of years. Shows the value of at least respecting dissenting opinions -- I'm not an expert, but it would be easier to accept the differing predictions, even in retrospect, if the anti-Schiff side weren't gleefully cackling about how wrong he is concerning Merrill Lynch and Goldman Sachs, among others.

Yeah, I saw this on Sullivan, too, and was amazed. People do so love to be told good news that you can't help but think the other pundits were just playing to the audience. I know there's an element of theater to punditry, but it's so amazing how dismissive they were of him (especially without offering anything in the way of actual analysis). I don't have money to invest, but if I did, I'm giving it to this guy and letting him tell me what to do with it down the penny.
