The Irish Times had some incredibly nice things to say about yours truly this week in a piece :


The Big Picture
The granddaddy of market bloggers, money manager Barry Ritholtz, started his Big Picture blog way back in 2003. More than 25,000 posts later, he remains the best in the business. Ritholtz has a nose for smelling the manure that all too often passes for fact, delivering opinionated but evidence-based analysis.

Famous for calling the market meltdown of 2008 as well as nailing the major market bottom of March 2009, Ritholtz has remained on the right side of the rally since then.

However, he never ceases to admonish the “folly of forecasting”, acknowledging the role of luck in investment and always focusing on process, not outcome.

In recent years, his blog has become more investment-oriented, with less attention paid to trading matters.

It is also a little more mild-mannered, especially since he became a Bloomberg columnist, although he still doesn’t suffer fools gladly. Just look at his comments disclaimer!; @ritholtz


Check out what they say about Josh as well.

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.

    I shall down a brew in The Big Picture’s honor this eve while hopefully bearing witness to a Badgers’ triumph!

    Likewise, and the hell with BudLight, I’m switching to Guinness for the night.

    Barry, I have a question that maybe you can answer. I own property leased to Waste Management for ever. The lease pays 1.35 per ton of trash deposited. The space will hold 6 million tons guaranteed by engineering studies. There is an escalation clause to $1.55 per ton if the price per ton received exceeds 35.00 per ton and it’s currently around 34.55….We sell landfill gas and I receive around $16000 per year for that. So, do you sell the cash flow and invest somewhere else, or ride this situation out? We use to take in all the trash from Bergen and Possaic counties in NJ and some from Manhattan. I have to share the royalty on the deposited trash three ways. The gas royalty is my share….Also, we are in the shale gas area though the deposit is 12000 feet deep but the acreage is 171…..I am 52 years old an unsure how to proceed. Thanks.

    I was rooting for Wisconsin as well. Not a big fan of the rent-a-team concept at Kentucky. UK makes a mockery of the university as an institution of higher learning.

    Then again, UK does play by according to the NCAA rules.

    Turned out to be a Spotted Cow I downed…

    Bar was going nuts, as it was on the UW Madison campus. Had that shot gone in, State St would’ve been quite the scene…
