Herding Lizards on Wall Street:
The implication is that “Markets are irrational because of quirks in human nature,” Burnham explains in his 2005 book Mean Markets and Lizard Brains.

Jae Jun has borrowed some of my notes on Greenwald in his posts which I encourage anyone to do. His blog is an example of someone who is seriously committed to self-learning and teaching/sharing what he discovers. Bravo! That said, no one is a guru so check his posts with your own common sense and independent thinking. For example, replacement value is extremely difficult to do accurately.
