Thanks Earl for your honest appraisal of someone that most don't understand and quick to lambaste.
Chartness did take a beating in the market in 2007-08, but so did ninety to ninety five percent of the population. What's so execrable about that? Should he be vilified every day because he displays signs of being a genius and being so avant-garde? I suppose.
Galileo the astronomer, also got into trouble with his theory and wound up in gaol if you recall.
Anyhow, to make a long story short, his detractors will be here en masse claiming that "their dads could have beaten his dad" when his million dollars will be stashed away and he'll be going for an encore.
