Quoting one's own work in an answer, not sure if that is credited or not. Haha.

haha touche. I don't think the point is relevant to the edited version of the question, but I stand corrected on the timeline of Churchill's involvement.

Indeed I am aware of what you raised, and Churchill was in the British government at the time. In response to your answer I've modified my question.

I realize my comments may come off too harsh. Your concerns are well deserved, founded, and noted, but I am just curious if there were rumblings among academics, and others, prior to the crash.

I think you took the word "prediction" too literally. I am interested in hearing what experts, if any, were warning about an overheated market. Although the random walk hypothesis, and efficient market hypothesis, are always interesting topics, this is not economics.stackexchange.com . I am interested in who said what, why, and when. I appreciate your answer all the same.

I clarified my question title because of the unnecessary focus on prediction in the first answer.
