Note:  Below is an article that I was asked to submit to Financial World for their July/August issue.  The editor heard me speak at the CSFI gig in London in January.  I am posting this so that you can read it early, but it is not to be distributed outside of this enrolled-member firewall in any way until after publication. 

I chuckle to think that I now get to put such an "off the reservation" message out to a very wide audience of financial professionals.  Enjoy, and let me know if you have any feedback or advice on how to improve it.  (Note that this is just a couple of words shy of the 1,800 word limit so there's not a lot of room to add more without subtracting).
