I will make clear at the outset the fond feelings I have for ZeroHedge, which is an incredibly successful blog which makes bad news and gloomy forecasts its speciality.
Appropriately (or ironically) enough, the site launched precisely at the start of the most massive sustained asset appreciation in human history, and of the 7,398 times they’ve predicted Doom, nothing has happened. (No one need remind me of the quote about glass houses).
I gave it a bit of thought, and just off the top of my head, below are some of the mega-events I’ve read about repeatedly over the past eight years, along with their outcomes.
Let me know if I’ve missed any big ones (or upvote anyone who has done so with whom you agree).
