• Godfather of Charts Turns Bearish; Targets Dow 12,000 (Moneybeat [1]) see also Why short sellers love China’s tall buildings (MarketWatch [2])
Bogle: A Legend Still Pines for the Good Fight (Morningstar [3])
• The Swedish model for economic recovery (Washington Post [4]) see also The Unsaved World (NYT [5])
• Fraud, failure and bankruptcy pay well for CEOs (MarketWatch [6])
• Detroit’s Woes Add to Angst Over Municipal Debt (WSJ [7]) see also FINRA tackles private securities as investors seek yield (Reuters [8])
• Why don’t Americans ride trains? (Economist [9])
• Mercedes Stop-and-Go Autopilot Heralds Hands-Free Push (Bloomberg [10]) but see Hyundai’s $48,000 Genesis Beats Luxury Car Competitors (Bloomberg [11])
