There is no way that my amusement can be considered anger.

This thread is probably confirmation of something.

It's one of the four Bernstein bubble requirements. "skeptics of <insert speculative asset here> are met with anger."

Re: Jack Bogle Is Worried About U.S. Pensions

Re: Wellesley Fund gender diversity and climate focus

I like working for women. In my experience, they are more likely to trust you to do your job, and are less ljkely to butt heads with you (for ego reasons). Just my experience, though.
