NathanWalker sends me (and others) interesting links to read, occasionally. I just wish that the group would debate the ideas with facts. I wrote a response to an article rehabilitating the word "conspiracy". It'd be neat to have a group of people that would take positions on ideas and argue for or against them.

More investing coolness:

  1. This list of 20 investments to be familiar with is a good start, I'd add commodity trusts and buyouts of firms.
  2. Governor Kohn gave a good overview of inflation and the primary variables that affect it in a recent speech.
  3. More books to read:
    On Competition, Porter, 1998
    Why Smart People Make Big Money Mistakes
    You Can Be a Stock Market Genius, Greenblatt Deplorable title, but well-recommended.
