Disagree with this. The fact that markets are hard to beat does not mean they produce great forecasts. Eg tech bubble burst and financial crisis were not predicted by markets. Just the opposite!

I think you should go for an endorsement deal. Could fetch, uh, 10s of dollars?

In 2005 and I were lucky enough to see a promising Spanish 18 year old kid play at Roland Garos. He won. Has lost two matches since. Amazing. Go Rafa!

My tweet is being mis-interpreted. Foolish of me to weigh in on a debate taking place in Spanish. The right number of options depends on the circumstances. You want Amazon to sell every book but retirement plans should not offer every fund. I do not know enough to say more.

Agree though the option to delay is more likely to be used by the wealthy. My proposal would offer the middle class access to that same good deal. Whether the pricing formula should be changed is another matter.
