Dear Readers:

What a shit job you did providing suggestions. (No offense Withy.)

What the fuck do you think this place is? Do you think you can just show up and fresh, innovative blogging will materialize out of thin air? Okay, tired, repetitive blog posts, but they don't think up and write themselves people. The whole thing makes my brain hurt.

Sincerely,
FLG

Bandits, not pirates.

Paradoxography.

Lord Peter Wimsey.

Those were the first three things that popped into my head. I'm sure there's some logic, but damned if I know what it is.

Securing your assets against hyperinflation

What, with the introduction of TIPS in 1997, this seems like a no-brainer for the fixed part of your portfolio and hyperinflation isn't that bad for equities (though it does reduce after-tax real return since your capital gains and dividends are taxed on a nominal rather than real basis).
