10 Weekend Reads

Posted By Barry Ritholtz On March 23, 2013 @ 6:30 am In Financial Press | Comments Disabled

During the week, I save the longer form reads I come across for the weekend, when you have more time to pour yourself a cup of tea, and really give these works some focus.

This week is another strange and interesting set:

• We Aren’t the World: Shaking the foundations of psychology and economics (Pacific Standard [1])
• When Ian Fleming picked my grandfather to steal Nazi secrets (BBC [2])
• What Fracking Means for Southeast Asia (The Diplomat [3])
• The Miner’s Daughter: Australia’s richest—and most controversial—billionaire. (The New Yorker [4])
• Adult Children Ignoring Confucius Risk Lawsuits in China (Bloomberg [5])
• How The Glock Became America’s Weapon Of Choice (NPR [6]) see also NRA money helped reshape gun law (The Washington Post [7])
• How I advise advisors to run an advisory business from my pulpit (RiaBiz [8])
• The Lock Pickers (Slate [9])
• A Letter to Paul Wolfowitz (Harper’s [10]) see also How Americans were swindled by the hidden cost of the Iraq war (The Raw Story [11])
• Who, What, Why: What does a pope do? (BBC [12])

What’s up for the weekend?
