All time high in the stock market, 3386, occurred on Feb. 19 — about a full month AFTER the US discovered there had been a terrible outbreak of the coronavirus in China. For that whole month, the market kept going higher despite the obvious threat this posed. Anyone with any kind of insight into that threat should have been selling, not buying. Hindsight is 20/20; foresight is 0/20.

I am a voracious reader and also enjoy writing. I often have a very different point of view than the popular one. I do see value in debate, and thought it might add to the public debate on controversial issues if I were to express my contrarian opinions. I also started keeping my poems recently (I've written little pieces my whole adult life but never kept any); and I've been a photographer now for over 25 years. So I will be adding an occasional poem and hopefully interesting photograph to the blog along the way, just to spice things up. View all posts by Henry Barnard
