Motley Fool on How to Read Financial News
- Joshua M Brown
- November 23rd, 2012
I just wanted to say thank you Morgan Housel and the whole gang over at Motley Fool for the shoutout they gave to me and a few of my blogger friends this week…
The below is Morgan’s regular reading list, most of which I agree with:
- Any half-serious investor should have a Wall Street Journal subscription. It’s $15 a month and covers 90% of relevant financial news.
- For economic data, no one comes close to the blog Calculated Risk.
- Eddy Elfenbein, Josh Brown, Barry Ritholtz, and FT Alphaville consistently provide the best market-related content.
- Read James Surowiecki of the New Yorker‘s columns every month. Twice.
- Derek Thompson of The Atlantic consistently writes thought-provoking pieces.
- Jonathan Weil of Bloomberg digs deeper than 99% of his journalist peers.
- Carl Richards of The New York Times is one of the best personal-finance writers in history. No exaggeration.
- Robert Johnson of Morningstar writes a good weekly piece on the economy. They’re well written and data-driven.
- Take 30 minutes every weekend to read The Economist (bonus tip: narrate it in your head with a British accent and you’ll feel smarter).
