Round Up: Schiller to Finance Grads Edition

by JT McGee

Robert Schiller is one interesting man, someone who has contributed a lot to the world of finance. I found his recent speech to financial grads very compelling. In it, he describes what he sees as the future for finance professionals, while reflecting on the dangers of speculative bubbles.

Worth a read, regardless of what you studied in school.

  1. AmericanDebtProject says the Crown Vic is one ride worth a look. Why not? Something tells me the worst part of a Crown Vic is that everyone slows down when they see you. That’d be annoying.
  2. Financial Uproar writes about why you should probably live in a small town and work in a bigger city. Makes sense, especially if you consider the opposite.
  3. Andrea explains exactly how I feel about personal finance data in a way I never could. She says she’s over Financial TMI – that more data is not necessarily better if you haven’t the slightest clue what to do with it.
  4. PK explains how you know you’re ready for active investing. Simple! Throw darts. Let the random walk decide your investment style. 😀
  5. A reader post at Free Money Finance makes me feel good about financial progress. This particular person wants to know if he should pay off $20,000 in student loan debt at a 1.625% interest rate. Seeing as he’s borrowing at a rate lower than the US government can borrow money, most comments rightfully suggest hanging onto that debt for as long as he can.
