In Defense Of Being The Party Pooper

To be taken seriously we cannot turn the movement of markets into something "of faith." We have to drill down on at a minimum the existence of reality...and of course at a minimum the idea that data exists, attempts to tell us what is...and that we manipulate the data (alghorithims) not in order to create "a bigger lie so that more will believe" but in fact the simplest and most identifiable forms of truth ("tweets" as it were.)

Obviously there is no simpler market truth than that markets can go only that "markets that correct are at a minimum real and at a maximum healthy."
