The top of today's reading list explains why buying last year's top performing mutual fund is often not a good idea ........ and the last article is about European problems being "papered over" by authoritarian actions.

Follow up:


  • Let's Consider Kate (John Lancaster, London Review of Books)  "Wheeling and dealing within the banking sector is thriving as much as it ever has."
  • Robotic bees to pollinate Monsanto crops (Russ McSpadden, scott.net)  Hat tip to Russell Huntley.  Swarms of tiny robot bees can pollinate plants when they are not tied up with military drone missions.
  • iShares’ Claims Make Me Nervous (Paul Amery, IndexUniverse.eu)  Hat tip to Izabella Kaminska.  The argument that ETFs increase liquidity is bogus.  How can they be more liquid than the underlying assets?
