Short Takes: Responsible Investing, Securities Regulation, and more

Here are my posts for the past two weeks:

Replying to Emails I Usually Ignore

Bad Surveys

Pay Yourself First?

Here are some short takes and some weekend reading:

Canadian Couch Potato discusses socially responsible investing with specialist Tim Nash. It sounds like it’s not possible to fully exclude companies with objectionable practices. Rather you end up with a tilt away from the practices you don’t like and possibly toward greener companies. In a later part of the podcast CCP delivers repeated beatings to Ted Seides over his attempt to explain away his crushing loss on a bet with Warren Buffett.

Preet Banerjee interviews Professor Anita Anand to discuss securities regulation in Canada and what needs to change to better protect investors.

The Blunt Bean Counter compares Canada’s CPP/OAS pension system to Social Security in the U.S.

Robb Engen shares his obsessions with saving money.

Big Cajun Man lays out the 5 steps to getting an RDSP.

Million Dollar Journey lays out a very simple index investing guide for Americans. He mentions an equally simple indexing approach for Canadians as well.

  1. Those 5 steps might not be all of them but it covers most of the process. Thanks for the inclusion this week.
