The prelude...
In the 1980s, Gerald Ratner inherited The Ratner Group, which owned over a thousand successful low-cost jewelry stores across the U.S. and UK called Ratners. In 1991 Gerald was invited to speak at an Institute of Directors convening. "It was a prestigious event with thousands of the U.K.'s most powerful investors in attendance." Gerald wrote a speech and showed it to his PR rep, who told him to add some jokes, which he did.
