Let’s say hypothetically that some putative person is not a savvy investor, but somewhere shortly after his or her 40th birthday becomes determined to better understand economic cycles and investment instruments so he or she doesn’t die in the poorhouse.
He or she might find these blogs informative and, if not exactly uproarious, at least interesting.
Investing « The Theroxylandr in Flame Very clear writing. Has a strong political POV too (anti-Republican, not to be confused with anti-conservative; I mention this only because I think some people don’t appreciate being “ambushed” by a political POV when they are not expecting it), but the blog mainly aims to provide a steely-eyed view of the economy and markets in the context of historical behaviors.
Front Row Seat. Our good friend DK Transformation’s investing blog – he was a trader at Morgan Stanley for years. He doesn’t post much but he’d better get on it if he really expects to put out the book :)
Harvey Reed recommends The Mises Institute’s various information resources – haven’t dug in there yet except to note that I love this quote on the home page: “Economics, wrote Henry Hazlitt, is haunted by more fallacies than any other study known to man. This is due in no small part to the special pleading of selfish interests.” Again for disclosure, Mises has been described as “the last knight of liberalism.”
As always, feel free to point me toward others in the comments. I like balanced inputs so conservative POVs welcome too.
