Coxe describes the spectacular rise and fall of technology and telecom stocks as a "Triple Waterfall," a technical analyst's term for a classic boom-and-bust event. In events like these, vast amounts of wealth change hands from investors to those who profit from the bubble, in this case the upper management of dot-coms and the like who cashed in big at the top by selling stock and exercising stock options. According to Coxe, "Triple Waterfalls aren't mere bubbles, they are financial pandemics that take not months, not years, but decades to run their course.
Chapter 4 When people begin to share the same beliefs about a particular style of investing, a herding effect can occur in the markets. At first, a small crowd starts moving into one segment of the market and, as it moves, prices rise, which causes other investors to be attracted and Wall Street analysts to start commenting.

derisory term meant something vastly different in its heyday. Hackers then, as now, were concerned about how things fit together, what makes things tick. Generally, many early hackers concerned themselves with understanding the nature of the telephone system, which encouraged the development of “blue boxes” and war dialers such as Ton Loc. Public bulletin boards (such as Prestel) had security flaws exposed and various services disrupted.
Warren Buffett is also questioned frequently about his philosophy regarding inherited wealth. He has made his opinions on the subject public, and has indicated that he worries that too large of an inheritance would make his three children spoiled. While it is uncertain the amount bequeathed to his children, it is known that after his death, Buffett’s shares of Berkshire-Hathaway are to be left to the Buffett Foundation and distributed to charitable causes. Perhaps this philosophy stems from Buffett’s own frugality.......
The progress that a nation is making can with reasonable accuracy be measured by the kind of live stock it raises. The general rule is, poor stock, poor people. All the prosperous nations of the globe, especially the grain-growing nations, get a large share of their wealth from raising improved stock. The stock bred by these nations is now, however, very different from the stock raised by the same nations years ago. As soon as man began to progress in the art of agriculture he became dissatisfied with inferior stock. He therefore bent his energies to raise the standard...

On the other hand, scholars have argued that adopting environmental and social policies can
destroy shareholder wealth (e.g., Friedman 1970; Clotfelter 1985; Navarro 1988; Galaskiewicz 1997). In
its simplest form the argument goes that sustainability may be just another type of agency cost where
managers receive private benefits from embedding environmental and social policies in the company, but
doing so has negative financial implications (Baloti and Hanks 1999; Brown, Helland, and Smith 2006).
The 2007 global financial crisis ignited by reckless bankers and their flawed reward structures will be felt for years to come.
Emerging from the wreckage, however, is renewed support for the over-arching objective of traditional finance theory,
namely the long-run maximisation of shareholder wealth using the current market value of ordinary shares (common
stock) as a benchmark.
The wealth of data now available allows us to estimate
which quantitative indicators are weighed most
heavily in the determination of ratings, to evaluate the predictive
power of ratings in explaining a cross-section of
sovereign bond yields, and to measure whether rating
announcements directly affect market yields on the day of
Our investigation suggests that, to a large extent,
Moody’s and Standard and Poor’s rating assignments can be
explained by a small number of well-defined criteria,
which the two agencies appear to weigh similarly.
In order to establish an accurate and up-to-date profile for ordinary UK adults and reflect trends in the profile of UK adults
through 2009-11, researchers drew upon a range of sources including the British Household Panel Study, the DWP Financial
Resources Survey (FRS), and the HM Revenue & Customs Marketable Wealth data.
Based on this profile, a sample of 1,300 people deemed to be fully representative of UK adult population, up to and
including the 95th percentile of savings wealth, is selected on a monthly basis by PureProfile, a leading online quantitative

We find that trusting individuals are significantly more likely to buy stocks and risky assets
and, conditional on investing in stock, they invest a larger share of their wealth in it. This effect
is economically very important: trusting others increases the probability of buying stock by
50% of the average sample probability and raises the share invested in stock by 3.4 percentage
points (15.5% of the sample mean).
These results are robust to controlling for differences in risk aversion and ambiguity aversion.

The share of income going to the wealthiest one percent of
households more than doubled between 1979 and 2007, from
10 to 23.5 percent. The concentration is even greater when
wealth and assets are included. In 2007, the top five percent
of households controlled 37 percent of all income, but 60
percent of all net worth. Even after accounting for taxes and
transfers, the incomes of the top one percent (adjusted for
inflation) grew 275 percent between 1979 and 2007, while
those of the middle class grew less than 40 percent. Partly a
result of the very large tax cuts...
The dramatic changes in stock values and in house values over the last decade
have renewed policy and academic interest in the effects of household wealth
on consumption expenditure. It is sometimes argued that the effect of changes
in housing wealth is larger than the effect of changes in stock market wealth.
reasoning is two-fold: ﬁrstly, more people own houses than shares and secondly,
ﬁnancial innovation has made it easier to access capital gains from housing wealth.
Joint ventures are distinct in that they are subject to joint control, regardless of share
ownership percentage. That is, the investors must unanimously agree on key operating,
investing, and financing decisions before they are implemented. This feature of joint con-
trol means that majority ownership does not confer control, nor does the right to appoint
the majority of the Board of Directors.
Joint ventures are quite common in mining operations and in oil and gas ventures. The
joint venturers all contribute something to exploration activities, and all share in any wealth
