But I need one for today, so here goes:
Judy’s comment on UGMA‘s yesterday was not entirely correct. If you read it before I fixed it, you might want to go back and see where it was misleading.
BUYING A HOUSE
M. Farbiarz: ‘I want to buy a house in three […]
Thanks for the several kind responses to yesterday’s column, including those of you who noted that this page is, after all, free. Irony of ironies, I am sorry to report – talk about awkward timing! – that just prior to receiving all those nice messages I had initiated a price hike, too late to recall, […]
Geoff Arthur: ‘Years ago, I used to really enjoy reading you. However, your column has become less and less finance related. You seem to be entirely focused on politics (which I find incredibly boring). So […]
Tomorrow: Your responses to Friday’s column. But today . . .
ENRON: WHOSE FAULT WAS IT ANYWAY?
Here’s an interesting piece from the Charlotte World. Yes, it concedes, greed contributed to the Enron mess. But the corrupting influence of gays and lesbians was a major contributing factor as well. ‘Not incidentally,’ reports the […]
There is nothing quite so impressive as an open mind. Having, like most people, a mind that’s not nearly as open as I like to think it is – and what may be an even deeper than normal aversion to admitting I am wrong – I naturally think I’m right about everything and that it’s […]
Ethan: ‘Monday‘s column includes the self-aggrandizing letter about the book that saved a life, but it didn’t mention which book. I think you may have a new customer.’
☞ I call it, The Only Investment Guide You’ll Ever Need – which is more than a little embarrassing when you consider how […]
QUICK! OH . . . YOU MISSED IT
Bryan Norcross: ‘You may not have realized it, but a historic minute in time will occur this coming Wednesday. For the one minute that it is 8:02 pm on Wednesday, February 20, 2002, the time, date, and year will read 20:02, 20/02, 2002. Okay, you have […]
But first . . .
Still thinking about Valentine’s Day? Well, here‘s a gem of an undiscovered little love story – between two Eighteenth Century ladies who eloped to Wales and won the hearts of everyone from the Duke of Wellington (who defeated Napoleon) to Charles Darwin (who is imagined to have been a […]
Listen, I know I’m milking this Valentine’s thing for all it’s worth – today is President’s Day and technically your subscription doesn’t even call for a column on days the market is closed – but one of you sent me a Valentine last week that made me feel so good I wanted to share it.
This question may have been more appropriate yesterday, as a Valentine’s Day topic, but I came across it a day late, reading a very clever manuscript that Robert Pollard, its author, handed me. I’m not sure when his book-to-be, Street-Smart Economics, will be completed and published, available to be One-Clicked, but I hope it won’t […]
Quote of the Day
Years ago, in the Carter term, a stockbroker tried to explain what Schlumberger did. 'It goes to 100,' the broker said, exaggerating only a little bit. 'Then it splits three-for-two and goes back to 100 again.'~GRANT'S Interest Rate Observer
