You’re Just Not Prepared For What’s Comingby Chris Martenson
All bubbles burst — painfully of course. That’s their very nature. Mathematically, it's impossible for half or more of a bubble's participants to close out their positions for a gain. But in reality, it's even worse. Being generous, maybe 10% manage to get out in time.
That means the remaining 90% don’t. For these bagholders, the losses will range from 'painful' to 'financially fatal'.
Which brings us to the conclusion that a similar proportion of people will be emotionally unprepared for the bursting of these bubbles. Again, playing the odds, I'm talking about you.
