Bill Fleckenstein on clueless money managers

So much in the investment business is about marketing. I see people with horrendous strategies and horrible numbers and they're still running zillions of dollars! I mean, how can anyone have any money at all with someone who was loaded with financial stocks in 2008? If they owned financial stocks they basically have a neon sign on their forehead that says, 'I DON'T GET IT! I don't understand the financial crisis.' Or housing stocks or anything like that. If you didn't understand the biggest bubble in the history of the world, why should you be allowed to run money?
