The Attraction of Pessimism
"The sky is falling" seems to have an innate appeal, especially when it comes to investing. Listen to hear why pessimism appears so attractive and optimism naive.
Few artists sing about pessimism as sweetly as Randy Newman. Check out "I Think it's Going to Rain Today." Not surprisingly, a great cover of this tune, with a unique twist, is performed by Joe Cocker. Enjoy both.
