Theory of the Marginal Moron
 by Scott Rothbort
 on February 25, 2009

Proposed by Scott R. Rothbort: Whenever a market reaches peak levels of speculation, the last entrants or "marginal morons" which have entered that market lack the necessary knowledge or sophistication to properly navigate their newly chosen field. Put another way, as markets go from a normal state to an over saturated state, they will attract more and more unsophisticated participants along the way with the greatest concentration of these “marginal morons” occurring at the market's peak.
