Very interesting candid interview of this Nobel prize winner. This academic had something to do with Modern Portfolio Theory. This is the second part, you should click on the link at the bottom for part one. He is writing a book and he is 90, talk about some inspiration! His answer why? “Because I’m having fun“—->And this is why TBB still exists at its present form 🙂
There are two kinds of people — ill-advised and well-advised. The ill-advised watch Jim Cramer yell at them on CNBC. I may be enthusiastic but I don’t yell advice. The smart investor just buys and holds a well-diversified portfolio, using index funds.
Diversify and rebalance. They don’t invite me on the television, because my message is, don’t look at television, just diversify and rebalance. The professional investor will outperform the market simply because they rebalance.
The Longest War: 8 Years After My Last Deployment, I Returned To Afghanistan As A Reporter. Here’s What I Found
If you are interested about Afghanistan this is great. The main conclusions are:
We’re not leaving Afghanistan…maybe ever
Afghanistan is not really about Afghanistan
In many ways, conditions have declined in recent years
The coming year will probably be the bloodiest to date
The US military strategy finally makes sense
Afghan special operations forces are the country’s best hope
We can’t kill our way to stability
Well, yes. I am not a big fan of Airbnb because I got way too many hotel points so I mostly stay for freeeee. I think the author makes some good arguments that Airbnb is starting to have that big company corporate feel, it’s not even fun anymore.
But as Airbnb has grown, so too has my sense that maybe I should just get a hotel, book a trendy hostel, or stay with friends. It’s a hard thing to measure—and maybe, at this point, the company doesn’t even care—but for me, the romance is gone.
Get ready to laugh! If you don’t laugh at all, please seek help, something must be wrong!
For some reason I was not aware of this. As many of you I use Wikipedia’s feature to see all the flights at a specific airport but this Kayak feature is more handy I think. You can click on each flight and see the complete schedules. All for a specific month (which takes care of seasonality). Enjoy!
Below you see direct flights out of Detroit in April 2018, change the airport and month and have fun!
And I leave you with this…
