It’s been said “there are no atheists in foxholes.” Apparently, the economic equivalent is “there are no true Free Marketers during depressions,” either . . .
–Barry Ritholtz, The Big Picture
Regular readers know I’m a big fan of blogger (and fellow former attorney) Barry Ritholtz (“The Big Picture”).
Quotes like the one above are a big reason why.
P.S.: Unfortunately, Ritholtz doesn’t return the favor — at least professionally speaking.
He regularly trashes Realtors, and in particular, their (our) trade organization, NAR (the National Association of Realtors).
I chalk it up to “mother issues” (Ritholtz’s was a Realtor).
