    So, in short these greedsters are actually not very smart people who make billions just because they are in the right place, with the right Rolodex, and ruthless beyond measure. Hmmm

      usually makes money. They sugar-coat that by calling it "Networking" but it comes down to connections and power.

      I am a cynic whenever I hear someone trying to describe the complexities of investing. There is some theory behind it, but it is statistical theory rather than anything to do with creating real value. I've never met a statistician willing to admit that much of what he or she does is document the weird random happenings in whatever phenomenon they try to study.

      Overall investing through a market is just like sitting into an honest poker game. It's a zero-sum game (less the mordida paid to the house for the privilege of sitting in) as long as everyone is playing by the rules, and if you call someone out for not playing by the rules you normally get banned from the game. That's bad form even, maybe especially, when it's true.
