Set forth below is the text of a comment that I recently put to another blog entry at this site:
Wade said you are wrong and even mentioning the Nobel prize is just silly exaggeration.
He only said that after he was threatened, Pink.
The problem with threatening academic researchers is that it becomes impossible to have confidence they believe anything they say once they agree to change what they say in response to threats.
Wade made MANY comments indicating that he believed that the work was Nobel prize quality prior to when the threats were made.
In fact, you have done the same, Pink.
You said for years that my claim of May 13, 2002, that the numbers in the Old School SWr studies were wildly wrong was unbelievable because none of the “experts” had said this at the time. Now every “expert” in the field says that I was right all along.
My guess is that several of the “experts” had doubts about the Old School numbers but were afraid to post honestly because they know what the Buy-and-Hold Mafia does to honest researchers.
We have been making huge strides in our understanding of how stock investing works for 32 years now. But we have gained no benefits because the Buy-and-Hold Mafia has intimidated all who understand what the research really says into silence.
You obviously didn’t know about the errors.
Now you do.
That’s what Nobel Prize quality research does, Pink. It brings you up to speed on realities you never imagined.
My peer-reviewed research shows millions of middle-class investors how to reduce the risk of stock investing by 70 percent. That is BY FAR the biggest advance ever made in this field.
The idea that that research is not worthy of a Nobel prize is pure Goon nonsense.
If the research was not worthy of a Nobel Prize, why did you threaten Wade? There would be no motive to risk a prison sentence unless the research was very, very, very important.
Your own criminal behavior tells the tale.
