I regretted putting up the first Gary scratch video ….. and now feel obliged to put up his next one.
Basically, I thought it would be funny and that would be the end of it; but hitting Gary is like hitting the tar baby (for people who had a deprived childhood).
Gary is not compatible with the OTP pub; but on many subjects his rebellious mind does come up with some interesting angles.
On the search for what is actually going on in the economic world, I cannot imagine that the possible moments of clarity, could ever outweigh his predilection for just making stuff up.
If we ever get round to thinking about what could replace what we have now, he could be valuable there….maybe. Or, if things go so out of control, that understanding is no longer of any use.
As I write this, I am half persuading myself, that knowing what is happening now is probably of not much use, as the future will be so different ……….. but, I am not going to give in yet.
Gary’s desperation to be right first time, must surely, be a bad way of approaching any problem. I will maintain, that going through the basics, is still the best way to earn a respectable opinion.
It may all turn out to be for nothing as events turn the basics over, but it must be better than just making it up as you go along …… mustn’t it~!?
