Yes, but what if you had made a ton of money off of Beanie Babies? How would you feel about it today? I was too young at the time to have done it, but I remember talking to a friend's mom and being dumbfounded by her belief in what she was doing. It made an impression on me.What happened to self ownership? Is it not vain to assume that your view that investment in something is insane must be the correct view?
