Econintersect: Every day our editors collect the most interesting things they find from around the internet and present a summary "reading list" which will include very brief summaries of why each item has gotten our attention. Suggestions from readers for "reading list" items are gratefully reviewed, although sometimes space limits the number included.
- A New Tool That Seals Bullet Wounds in Seconds With High-Tech Sponges (Joseph Flaherty, Wired) A companion for smart guns and the rifle that can't miss?
- Will China shake the world again? (Robert Peston, BBC Business) Hat tip to John O'Donnell. Peston, the BBC Business Editor, reports on his trip to China and his interviews there. He says it's not a question if China will slow, only of how. According to Peston, if rebalancing does not start now and progress gradually over the next few years the alternative will occur: a crash of monumental proportions that will "shake the globe". Sounds like what Michael Pettis has been saying for several years.
- Retirement Strategy: When Is The Perfect Time To Buy Stocks? (Alan Saltzman, Regarded Solutions, Seeking Alpha) Hat tip to Global Economic Intersection discussion group on LinkedIn. Want to time the market? Saltzman indicates that investing is a continuous process and it is much more important to "keep your money moving". See also articles "Behind the Wall" that relate to this theme.
The focus today is investing, including a couple of more articles about gold that didn't make yesterday's 'behind the wall' deadline. There are 13 articles discussed 'behind the wall'.
