Note from a reader
I love it when the Commentariat actually puts some work into their contributions to The Year of Magical Painting. This, verbatim, from David the Fool:
Host: Is the Raymond boom over?
Bove: Raymond is a stone-cold buy!
Whitney: Guy is so goddamn screwed. Sell sell sell.
Taleb: People are underestimating the risks of holding Raymond paintings. They may be in for a surprise. The biggest surprise is that he never painted me or any of my beautiful black swans. The bastard.
Roubini: I think he could be in for a downtown in the next quarter or maybe in the one after that or perhaps it will occur in the one after that.
Krugman: More fiscal expansion is necessary for Raymond to avoid a depressive slump that could last for decades.
Random Zero Hedge commenter: Who the fuck is Geoffrey Raymond?!
Anna Chapman: Ooh I think I fancy his commenter Daveed Ze Fool.
Raymond: Fuck all of you!
