The subprime borrowers had no idea the housing market was about to slump, preventing them from refinancing those teaser rates. The mortgage brokers didn't ask about jobs and such, because no one was demanding this information. The rating agencies didn't know that this confluence of easy credit, misplaced incentives and overheated real estate would alter historical default rates, the more so because most housing downturns since the Great Depression have been regional in scope. And the people who packaged all those mortgages into securities have only just recovered from the shock of how easy it was to sell all that paper ...

Modern Portfolio Theory suggests advance in a advanced array of assets classes that accept little alternation to one another.

This is apparent in the common, annular numbers acclimated in archetypal applicant allocations.

Fwd: Barron's - 2009-06-01 ed.
but the shift to thrift -- brought on by a sagging economy and stock market, and heralded on the cover of Time -- also has gone too far. According to Gallup, the polling organization, Americans cut their daily expenditures by more than 40% in the past year. That's not just fewer lattes; it's muscle and bone. As savings rise and the market rallies, however, a new consumer is emerging, seeking a sensible middle ground between the gross excesses of the mid-2000s and the privations of the past year. He -- and more often, she -- is likely to find it in companies that offer great products, excellent service and ... market research, surveys and trends


How does The Emperor's New Clothes relate to - No More Pies
An emperor of a prosperous city who cares more about clothes than military pursuits or entertainment hires two swindlers who promise him the finest suit of clothes from the most beautiful cloth. This cloth, they tell him, is invisible to anyone who was either stupid or unfit for his position. The Emperor cannot see the (non-existent) cloth, but pretends that he can for fear of appearing stupid; his ministers do the same. When the swindlers report that the suit is finished, the Emperor then goes on a procession through the capital showing off his new "clothes." During the course of the procession, a small child cries out, "the ... industry trends, business articles and survey research
Milbank Quarterly
Herbert Simon�s work on bounded rationality has had little impact on health policy discourse, despite numerous supportive findings. This is particularly surprising in regard to the elderly, a group marked by a decline in higher cognitive functions. Elders� cognitive capacity to make decisions will be challenged even further with the introduction of the new Medicare prescription drug benefit program, mainly because of the many options available. At the same time, a growing body of evidence points to the perils of having too many choices. By combining research from decision science, economics, and psychology, we highlight the ... industry trends, business articles and survey research
Thinking about long term independence
Now before I start on a series that is, in essence, long term financial planning and targeted investing advice, it is worth pointing out to you the following:  I have absolutely no qualifications whatsoever as a financial planner. I have never studied its principles nor have I ever felt inclined to study the inner working of modern finance theory, portfolio theory, efficient market hypothesis or any of the other wonderful stuff doctorates are awarded for.  A simple paper on investment theory and net present value and related topics was enough, in fact I got halfway through the paper and didn't bother to finish it. ... market trends, news research and surveys resources
How will Baby Boomers' retirement affect stocks?
Given the stock market's dismal returns the past decade, few will have as much saved for retirement as they had planned. The past three months alone, the average stock mutual fund has shrunk by 10%, according to Lipper, which tracks the funds. The past 10 years, the average stock fund has gained an average 0.2% — far below the stock market's average annual gain of 9.7% since 1926. A good decade in the market often follows a bad one. But the big question: If Boomers follow the usual pattern of shifting their portfolio mix toward income-generating investments — bank CDs, bonds and dividend-paying stocks ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

2000 Municipal Market Roundtable (Keynote Address)
  – I honestly thought that you were going to say the Chairman because I was going to give my remarks a title. Nobody loves munis more than I do unless it's nobody, but I think it is a contest. I really do believe it is a contest as to whose heart and soul is more deeply involved in this market, and I'm sure that it isn't just a contest between the Chairman and myself. But many of you in this room who are over the last 30-odd years have been in the trenches, and, if not you, perhaps some of your parents have who have been in this industry. I will say that I have given the better part of a life to ... technology research, surveys study and trend statistics

Why are "aunt" and "uncle", emplyed in a nonfamilial sense, used as terms of endearment and honorifics in so many societies? Any tips for getting rid of static electricity in big, furry dogs? My Old English sheepdog is always rubbing against the couch and rolling around on the carpet. Every time I scratch him behind his ears, I get a slight jolt. I've tried rubbing down his favorite pillow with a Bounce sheet, but of course the static always comes back. Thanks to everyone in advance. I'm thinking about upgrading my laptop and use it for amateur DJ'ing in parties. What software and hardware do you guys ...
