The Greater Fool.....

"one who believes they can succeed where so many others have not". I don't know why I put quotes around that. In financial circles the greater fool is a rube. Meaning one can still turn a profit buy finding an even bigger idiot if you find yourself with over valued assets. I like this phrase as Aaron Sorkin used it in episode 10 of The Newsroom as someone who will make a radical departure from the status quo despite all of it's negative consequences because it IS the right thing to do!

Aaron Russo, Nikola Tesla, Ron Paul, I'm jus' sayin'
