One of the highlights of my weekend is Professor Paul Kedrosky’s Sunday morning linkfest. (yes, I know, that’s kinda pathetic). Incidentally, Paul’s blog is Infectious Greed, and while it’s mostly VC focused, its always an informative read.

While we are awaiting his roundup, I wanted to waste a few electrons on some items:

Many columnists at The Street.com are also published authors. Recent additions to a library of authorship includes James Altucher’s Trade Like Warren Buffett and Hewitt Heiserman Jr.’s  It’s Earnings That Count : Finding Stocks with Earnings Power for Long-term Profits.

Altucher is averaging a book a year, which is pretty
frightening — he writes more than many people read. I haven’t gotten to Hewitt’s book yet, but some readers have given it very high marks. The praise its generating from a number of notables bodes well. (If I missed any recent publications by TSCM’s authors, please let me know here).

Lately, I have been extending my prior research on China and India. Here’s a few ideas I have been playing with:

China’s Oil Grab

China on Course to Overtake US Economy

The Economist ReWeights its Commodity-Price Index

Have a good weekend!

Please use the comments to demonstrate your own ignorance, unfamiliarity with empirical data and lack of respect for scientific knowledge. Be sure to create straw men and argue against things I have neither said nor implied. If you could repeat previously discredited memes or steer the conversation into irrelevant, off topic discussions, it would be appreciated. Lastly, kindly forgo all civility in your discourse . . . you are, after all, anonymous.
