Here’s a post from two weeks ago discussing the idea that Siemens would procure Alstom and GE had no chance of making the acquisition of a major French industrial champion. Also, I am reposting a piece from two-and-a-half years ago in reference to a comment on yesterday’s blog by Chicken. The post highlights the THE SLOWER FOOL THEORY, propagated by Richard Dennis. It does a great deal to explain why investors pursue a course of action which they inherently know is fraught with high risk for little reward. The global bond markets are now the paradigm for the theory.
