For the rest of us to profit, we need a greater fool. Someone who will buy long and sell short. Most people spend their lives trying not to be the greater fool. We toss him the hot potato; we die for his seat when the music stops. The greater fool is someone with the perfect blend of self-delusion and ego to think that he can succeed where others have failed.This whole country was made by greater fools.
"I watched the show. And I read the New York magazine article and I know what a greater fool is. I want to be one."
—Ask me again. Ask me your idiot question again.
“What makes America the greatest country in the world?”
