Quotes from this episode:
“There are so many untruths spread by folks on the radio; the market timers, the guys who believe you can pick the right stocks at the right time; the day traders, the ones who claim they have a magical system to get you in and out of stocks, minute by minute, where you can just become ridiculously wealthy.” — [0:08:23]

“Ninety-nine per cent of the investment advisors in America are not always required to do what’s right for you 100% of the time. That is a sad commentary on this country.” — [0:29:02]

“Only a fool would believe the future is predictable.” — [0:30:19]
