Below are some examples of today's new-era thinking:

  • Biotech and the cloud form the basis of our investment and business futures.
  • Profit margins and valuations will remain elevated.
  • It's the weather, stupid.
  • Cash is trash.
  • High-frequency trading buoys market liquidity.
  • We are in a period of extended prosperity and self-sustaining growth.
  • The global capital markets and economic growth trajectory will be immune to rising interest rates.
  • China will continue to be the world's economic growth driver.
  • China's leveraged banking and shadow banking system pose limited risks to the capital markets.
  • Geopolitical risks are irrelevant to the global stock markets.
  • Housing has entered a multiyear period of growth in activity and prices.
  • Elon Musk is the new Steve Jobs.
  • Tesla (TSLA) is the company of the future -- on so many levels.
  • Starbucks (SBUX) is a technology company.
  • The Fed's obscuring of natural price discovery will be maintained ad infinitum.
  • There will never again be a 10% market correction.

Be forewarned.
