Interesting read so far... Certainly seems like it would be an interesting read, though I also assume he'd show a complete lack of self-awareness/criticism. Why would you assume that? He's an economist... an academic. Not a politician. It just doesn't sound helpful at all to have his take on the co...

http://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/I/41ophY78M2L.jpg Couldn't put this down (I'm a huge NStephenson fan). I'd love to hear some thoughts if anyone has read it. I am on page 400 or so and loving it. Haven't read any of his other books, but will definitely check them out after this one. What do you ...

I know that's rhetorical, but the Vet got tired of trying to explain things to us Rooks.

Re: Stock Market Discussion

Not everyone has tens of thousands to invest in the S&P. I'm mostly a pessimist so I already think the stock market is largely rigged. The people with the most can have the biggest impact on everyone else. Warren Buffet can liquidate shares and cause a sell off. Computers trade and sell in millisec...

Re: Netflix Streaming Finds.

Re: Stock Market Discussion

Once discussions like this start popping up ("I'm dipping my toes in the market!") it's usually a sign that the party is coming to an end. Picking individual stocks is a zero sum game; your competition in that game is hedge funds, pensions, mutual funds staffed by leagues of MBAs,CFAs, PhDs and mor...
