I am interested in the history of markets, money management, and investment philosophy and process.
Though much of it may have been forgotten, everything I share is part of the public record (be it newspapers, books, or public filings).
"This is a money game and money is the way we keep score. But the real object of the Game is not money, it is the playing of the Game itself. For the true players, you could take all the trophies away and substitute plastic beads or whale's teeth; as long as there is a way to keep score, they will play."
Adam Smith, The Money Game
"What is history all about if not the exquisite delight of knowing the details and not only the abstract patterns?" Stephen Jay Gould
