Re: I blame the cursed one

a bit like selling off massive UK gold reserves when the price of gold was low. Economic genius that bloke!

A singularly stupid event, having telegraphed to the market what his trade was going to be before he made it, resulting in the price dropping out of gold just before he arrived to sell it. An event, still known to this day in the markets as "the Brown bottom". Seems appropriate.
