  • Markets and Hype: A Tale of Two Depressions [View article]
    Thnx for the comments.
    Nick, I agree with you. This is one of my favorite topics of conversation: Investors build their strategies based on what's worked within their recent lifetimes. Those who did this did not understand what happened in '08 and did badly; whereas, those who had perspective on what had happened in faraway places (Latin America, Japan, Germany) and long ago times (Great Depression) did well or relatively well.

    appreciate your comment. the wave of market adoption you've awaited and now don't anticipate until you die has already begun and is now 2 years in-motion. investors' thought processes become clouded when things don't turn out as expected and/or on their timelines; i'd encourage you to take another look with as much objectivity as possible.

    per my piece, it has taken a decade for proof of concept. the technology now is proven. market adoption subsequently began to gain momentum a couple of years ago... battery-based technology in this space is slowly being disintermediated. but don't take it from me; just speak with any consultant engineer in the know about tech in this space.

    And just wait to see what happens when ACPW's new generation of flywheel-based UPS hit the market.. we're likely to see an acceleration in market share loss for battery-based manufacturers.
