You know that it's Götterdämmerung in the capital markets when...

Dealbreaker's John Carney starts quoting Martin Heidegger.

Dealbreaker: Philosophy and Markets

Heidegger, in my estimation, vacillated between being completely full of crap, and dining out on pointing out the obvious, but couching it in lots of obtuse compound words.

I have been told by more than one person that philosophy students in Deutschland read Heidegger in the english translations, because he makes more sense in english than in his native german.
