These aren't in any particular order. They do represent something that almost motivated a post. I got as far as plopping them here but did not go far enough to respond. It wasn't until today that I ran across a real motivator: Ben's Put. These others may be of use at some point. Right now, consider them relevant to the theme of this blog.
- Fed won't halt bond buying in '13 - in other words, according to this author, the Put talked about in the Seeking Alpha commentary doesn't exist or is inconsequential.
- Index Universe - saw this referenced in a WSJ article on ETFs. Nice site with lots of good stuff to read.
- Marc Faber: Get Ready For Decade-Long Low Interest Rates - nice technical view, but savers are being sacked.
- All the Devils Are Here: The Hidden History of the Financial Crises - first book that I bought in a long time (love virtual books). But, I picked it up from a discounted pile and couldn't put it down. Seems like it'll be a good reference to use when I go back over the posts here which were, basically, motivated by being around a long time, observing, and then watching idiocy unfold, daily.
- All the Devils Are Here: Best Business Book of the Year - had to put this here for balance.
- TARP: The bailout success story that wasn't - taxpayers, and savers, get the bill.
- Nation of takers - pre-election, even.
- Yes, Mr. President, We Are a Nation of Takers - seemed funnier when read in print.
- We've Become a Nation of Takers, Not Makers - what does the capitalist make? He/she pays someone else to do the work.
