The horror of a boom

THIS POST MAY CONTAIN AFFILIATE LINKS. PLEASE READ MY DISCLOSURE FOR MORE INFO.

People who graduated with me, almost always, have a story to tell about an idiot boss from their first job. One who was hired during the dotcom madness and had a job because because he or she was old enough to employed then. That was in technology, mostly in America, and a product of the 90s. The generation before mine, I am sure, has its own boom story that brims with its own idiots. In any given geography. One of the sure signs of the boom ending is when the passability of a promising hire, who was recruited to achieve the original forecast of a 70 percent CAGR or higher, looks strained. Exhibit A.

Amit Varma, in a stellar write-up, has managed to derive present day Nandigram from property rights. Someone in the Congress Party must be having a laugh at the Mint’s expense — worse, at the country’s. Which seems to think, being dropped mid-air constitutes flying.

PS: Suggestion for Ravikiran — if your inputs were used for parts of a write-up and the basic premise is something you haven’t read in full, ask the author to stop citing those inputs.
