NW Bound - I'm really glad you have the Buddha history to share. I enjoyed that portion of the Story of India TV series. It's interesting how China and Japan and other far eastern counties adopted the India export Buddhism, whereas in the northern India region of origin it was ultimately displaced by Islam except for in the Himalayas.

He basically now thinks that overvalued situations can persist as long as there is no event triggering a panic. So he expanded the model. Last I checked (a while ago) he's now in the "overvalued but no crash ahead" camp.

Whether it works dunno, but he's trying to learn from his mistakes and freely admits them.
I dunno, gave up on following any of his comments as he was so wrong for a very long period of time and refused to smell the roses.

Buddhism spred west as far as Afghanistan. Proof is the giant statues of Siddharta in the Bamiyan valley, which was on the Silk Road. The two statues were carved into the face of a cliff in the 6th century. They survived through the centuries, until blown up by the Taliban in 2001.

Buddhism today is known through the worship of the Chinese and Southeast Asians, who introduced their own regional flavors and customs. Hence, it is common for Westerners to think of the laughing Buddha as the real Buddha Siddartha. It's a big mistake, as I said, the same as thinking of Santa Claus as representing Christianity.

(Adjusts bowtie...) A "crash" will happen, as likely will a bear, a bull, a recession or two, maybe throw in a couple of bubbles...

I really like this birds eye of the spread of the major religions:


Didn't how far into Africa for example Islam spread, and how Buddhism basically "ate" Hinduism from within before jumping east.

(Veering off-topic, I know. So thank you for the Buddhistic mod tolerance).
