Weekly Mixtape

Morgan Housel: Three Big Things: The Most Important Forces Shaping the World “People like to talk about new technologies and innovations, because that’s fun. Demographics aren’t fun.

Show up and shut up. People don’t want your trite platitudes or quick-fix solution–they’re desperate for your presence.

Dr. Phil Pearlman: The Most Boring Superpower Ever “In fact, using energy to exercise is the only thing in the universe that does not follow the laws of conservation of mass and energy, because, somehow,  the more energy you use the more you have.

Humble Dollar: Tiresome Debates “That raises the obvious question: If what I say is true, why do many folks resist paying down debt? Some may have mortgages or other debt with interest rates that are less than the yield they can earn on bonds, so buying bonds would be the rational choice.
