For this award, I nominate this tidbit:
My nomination for the most significant economic event of the past decade: The failure of the Human Genome Project to thus far deliver medically significant results.
Um, what? Is this a joke?
Shorter: You genomics morans have failed to cure Alzheimer’s so far. You’ve had the genome for a while–what’s the matter with you people? You have trashed the economy because of this.
I’m sorry: if you based your expectations on what you were told by biotech executives and academics with a foot in those companies, you need better filters. But it does explain how everyone fell for credit default swaps too, I suppose.
