Albert Einstein introduced his Theory of General Relativity in 1915. His finding, according to a helpful Space.com article, was that massive objects cause a distortion in space-time, which is felt as gravity.
I’m going to end my invocation of Einstein there, because, well, he is Einstein and I am not. I graduated from college with a Bachelor of Arts degree, which means I can write eloquently about Einstein’s theory without having any true understanding of his thinking.
Fortunately, I have an understanding of the capital markets and I can even write eloquently about them from time to time. So, if you’ll allow me a little space and time here, I’d like to talk about the theory of general relativity that has consumed the stock market.
