Otmane El Rhazi : The Real Driver of Economic Growth
Otmane El Rhazi from Forbes - Intelligent Investing.
Below is the September 1st Thoughts from the Frontline, republished in full.
“It’s said that power corrupts, but actually it’s more true that power attracts the corruptible. The sane are usually attracted by other things than power.”
– David Brin in The Postman
“For every good idea, ten thousand idiotic ones must first be posed, sifted, sniffed, tried, and discarded. A mind that’s afraid to toy with the ridiculous will never come up with the brilliantly original.”
– David Brin, Orbit interview
As I begin my 15th year of writing Thoughts from the Frontline – some 700-odd newsletters plus 400–500 editions of Outside the Box, 6 books, and scores of special reports – I decided to take a random walk back through some of my writings (and your comments!). With some glaring and notable exceptions that I would like to take off the internet (but won’t because to do so seems somewhat intellectually dishonest), the body of work has held together pretty well. My writing style has matured and so has my thought process – or at least it seems so to me. Writing this letter has been the best personal educational tool I have ever experienced, enriching my life far more than I have probably enriched yours. I’ve done my 10,000 hours. Plus. No college, no course or seminar, could provide me with the wide range of materials I’ve studied.
