Weekend reading: Vaccinated

What caught my eye this week. I got the call to be vaccinated against Covid this week. I admit that being in the midst of reading about super-rare blood clots linked to certain Covid vaccines at the exact time didn’t fill me with joy. But as Tim Harford says in the Financial Times: An educated guess, based on UK data, is that being vaccinated with the AstraZeneca jab carries a one-off risk of death of one in a million — not much higher than the risk of dying in an accident while travelling to...

Defining Your Brand Vision

Brand vision is intention. It can be a single-minded intent, or a group of goals and objectives — typically no more than one, two or three. Steve Jobs wanted this, “Put a ding in the universe.” Henry Ford wanted to make cars that ordinary Americans could afford. (Consider that in Henry’s era, people were driving the equivalent of $200,000 Teslas while everyone else was riding a horse.) Tesla Motor’s vision is to accelerate the world’s transition to sustainable energy. And Elon Musk’s newest v...

Amazon says it supports expanding voting rights but it gave $500,000 to lawmakers who oppose those efforts

Amazon funds candidates who support policies that have made it harder for Americans - particularly African Americans - to vote.

Weekend reading: William Bengen’s new five percent rule

What caught my eye this week. P erhaps if it was known as the Bengen rule, William Bengen would be more insufferable. But judging by his appearance on the Rational Reminder podcast this week, the inventor of the (in)famous 4% rule (of thumb) is a delightful human being. You’ll remember Bengen was the first to put statistical guardrails around how much a US retiree could spend from their savings to avoid running out of money. The approach seems as obvious as the merits of index funds nowadays. ...

Weekend reading: Common Sense for crazy times

What caught my eye this week. I enjoyed Ben Carlson’s response to the GameStop ferment this week. He could have dived into the minutia of gamma squeezes and Reddit lore. But instead the Wealth of Common Sense blogger and Weekend Reading favourite dived into his archives. Ben decided to reprint a chapter of his book Everything You Need To Know About Saving For Retirement. In it he explains how he helped his then-girlfriend (miraculously now his wife) to get familiar with market volatility with...

How Successful Brands Win By Failing

Disruption is often associated with innovation, risk-taking, speed, agility, and a willingness to challenge the norms and disrupt the business itself in order to enter new markets and categories. These are all traits of smaller, younger digital businesses, for sure, and can be the first type we think of when we consider disruptive organizations. Of course, some of those startups then scale up and become an Amazon, Apple, or Netflix: huge, successful companies that maintain a disruptive culture ...

Delivery Services Are Set to Be Amazon’s Next Billion-Dollar Business

Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos is not one to pass up a good deal--or leave anything to chance.

And so it was perhaps no surprise in early January when Amazon announced its purchase...
