    With all due respect, I think this Cantab is a massive tool.

    Niall Ferguson is an economic historian who has convinced himself he is an economist. And he's not a good one. The Fool talks about moneyballing of the financial world. I suggest you do some moneyballing of this guy's past statements and predictions. The Harvard name excuses all manner of sins. If there were any justice in the world, the wikipedia entry for pedant would begin with Niall Ferguson's name.

    Niall's going to tell us how to safegaurd our portfolios? So what are your positions, Niall? What is your trading record?

    Not even going to watch the video. Blech.
