The Benefits of Not Knowing

Well,apparently, today, there was, at some point, a significant drop in the Dow Jones Industrial Average (DJIA). Well, I didn’t learn about it the end of my work day (after the market had closed).

Glad I missed the news. Isn’t the financial markets, the financial fragility of this country (and frankly most of the “developed” world), depressing enough? Why develop an ulcer over the gyrations of the market? I know it is great theatre for the “talking heads” but for the rest of us, let’s acknowledge what has happened and move on. Frankly, what can you do? Not a darn thing! So not knowing, is well, probably best for the psyche.
