  1. Am I stupid this morning or something? Somebody please tell me how
    “… to direct capital to its most productive end, facilitating sustainable job creation and a rise in the aggregate standard of living.”
    is WORSE than Marxism. Because to me, it sounds like perfectly unbiased, no political agenda, investment. Investment in proven winners.

  2. Crivens, I guess I am. Never mind.

    I got thrown trying to figure out what a nihilistic approach was. Because investing without a moral compass would seem to mean investing in profitable companies without regard to the products they make. So buy stock in defense contractors and morning-after abortion pill makers, snuff porn and holy water filter makers, IF they’re making money. Which sounds very much like active management. Unless nihilistic is used here to mean a thoughtless shotgun approach; throw buckets of money anywhere and hope some sticks. That’s beyond Passive, that’s Stupid.

    Guess I’m still confused.

  4. Claire, I had something tickling at the back of my mind when that statue showed up– something “off” aboot it.

    Didn’t have time to pursue it.

    You explained it so eloquently.

  5. So, phoning it in rather than doing your damned job works great?
    Until it doesn’t.

    Probably that synergy vision con.

  6. Oh, and the little girl has the sun in her eyes, and the wind blew up her shorts.

    Old softball excuse.

  7. Good way to get a little girl hurt or killed, ‘fyaskme.
    Rule of gross tonnage an’ all that.

    Well, unless she’s armed.

  8. I read earlier that some guy simulated having sex with the bronze chick. They were outraged.

    Maybe the folks behind the thing should have placed her closer to the Bear.

  10. I’m not a little girl I ain’t skeered of a good economy. It is somewhat interesting that the little girl is trying to face down rising prices, oh well children that age do not have pension plans.

  11. That pose, if she ain’t challenging the bull (Not President Clinton) to grab her by the pousay, might be her channeling John Kasich the weird guy who pees with hands on hips at the urine-hole.

  12. Did they just assume his/her/it’s gender?

    If it’s a girl, isn’t a dress kind’a, you know, a gender-normal stereotype?

  14. Well said. When I first saw that I thought it was a staged “fake” statue. Guess not. That little girl is such a bear.,
