It is understandable that the Fed injects cash to avoid the collapse of the stock market, but basically it is bad policy for monetary authorities to intervene to save speculators from bankruptcy. This is not their role.
Maurice Allais
North Korea’s whole idea is to create a crisis to solve a crisis. They’re so poor and they’re so desperate that they realize that this bombastic rhetoric can drive the South Korean stock market down and get the U.S. in a tizzy. And it’s a game they’ve been playing for many, many years.

Nassim Nicholas Taleb
Some calamities – the 1929 stock market crash, Pearl Harbor, 9/11 – have come like summer lightning, as bolts from the blue. The looming crisis of America’s Ponzi entitlement structure is different. Driven by the demographics of an aging population, its causes, timing and scope are known.
George Will
If you have a company called x and today you feel the price is very high. Next year it could perform very well but the price may not perform. So in the stock market what happens is buy on the rumor, sell on the news.
Rakesh Jhunjhunwala
Agriculture is not crop production as popular belief holds – it’s the production of food and fiber from the world’s land and waters. Without agriculture it is not possible to have a city, stock market, banks, university, church or army. Agriculture is the foundation of civilization and any stable economy.
Allan Savory
I’m quite bullish. We’re coming up on year 15 of a flat stock market. Historically that’s a pretty good sign. So I’m not a hedge-fund manager but if I was I think I’d be feeling pretty good.

Peter Blair Henry

Dominic Cummings
In the world I’ve known most of my life, old stories quickly lose their power over capital markets and get replaced by new surprises. That which everyone fixates on gets priced into the stock market quickly and can’t drag on.

When we do an investment, we always ask, ‘Can we affect the outcome? When buying a company, can we have an impact?’ That’s a different style of investing than a passive investor in the stock market. To me, that’s how you’re taking the risk out of it. You know what your capability is and how you can enhance value.
Dan Gilbert
Stock market corrections, although painful at the time, are actually a very healthy part of the whole mechanism, because there are always speculative excesses that develop, particularly during the long bull market.
Ron Chernow

Rakesh Jhunjhunwala
I don’t invest in the stock market.

The stock market is for people who live in Manhattan an

Jeremy Grantham
The reality is that business and investment spending are the true leading indicators of the economy and the stock market.

Mark Skousen
If you were to just design the perfect retirement plan, you would own the stock market or you would own the bond market. You would get all the costs or all that you possibly could out of the system. So on an annual basis, if the market went up 8 percent, you would get 7.8 or 7.9 percent.

Giorgio Armani
When the weather changes, nobody believes the laws of physics have changed. Similarly, I don’t believe that when the stock market goes into terrible gyrations its rules have changed.
Benoit Mandelbrot
Facebook is like the Internet: a large company and an application. Bitcoin is a protocol for decentralisation, so you could build a decentralised company on top of it, a stock market. It’s an Internet of ownership, so it’s not quite a direct comparison.
