Common Sense Ain't Common

Common Sense Ain't Common

Will RogersPopularized by Will Rogers, whose humorous wisdom resonated with the common man. It reminds us that real common sense comes from thinking differently from the common man at times of mass irrationality. When the common man believed Internet stocks would go to the moon in 2000 ... when he believed Bernie Madoff was a genius ... and when he believed in late 2008 that America's financial system might actually fail ... at all those times, he lost his common sense because his thoughts melded with those of the irrational crowd ... and he paid the price.
