Suggested Readings

 Welcome! I want to make this site an asset for all the visitors of the site. Those of you that know me, know that I am an avid reader all subjects. I don't intend to make this a place for investment reading per se. However, I believe that any understanding of our world helps an investor make the right decisions. I welcome your comments and with your permission I will post them on the web site. Also I would be honored if there's something that you would reccomend.

*Against the Gods...The Remarkable Story of Risk by Peter L. Bernstein This is a fascinating work by a mathematician who goes back in history and tells the story of how the concept of risk grew throughout the ages. Although its written by an academician is quite readable. The author is also kind enough to let us know when he's going to start writing about theoretical math (which may only be accesable to a few) and where to pick up with the story.

 *Genome, The Autobiography Of A Species in 23 Chapters. by Riddley Scott A fascinating introduction into one of the greatest discoveries of our generation. The potential of this information is astounding. Some are positioning field, as the next exciting investment. However, people in the industry have told me that now one knows how long it will take for these ideas to become practical solutions.

 

*Alexander Hamilton, by Ron Chernow  Before, Ron Bernanke, before, Alan Greenspan, and before Paul Volcker there was Alexander Hamilton.  A fascinating individual who created our economic system. Two very interesting facts:

1)  His nemesis, Thomas Jefferson, asked someone to look into what he had done and find whatever fault he could.  The person came back and told Jefferson that he developed a perfect ecomonic model that aside from being genius was fair to all parties.

2)  The creator of our economic system was also one of the first abolotionists.
