Weekend reading: How will you really feel when the market goes Slytherin down?

What caught my eye this week. T here are some writers who can knock out zingers worthy an entire article from a rival hack, and one of investing’s is Jason Zweig. In fact it’s a good thing Zweig is so pithy, because most of the piece the following quote is from sits behind a Wall Street Journal paywall.

Podcast Ep. 152: Matchmaking, Being Set Up, & Recommendations

As I prepared for this episode, it occurred to me that some of worst dating and relationship experiences were with people who I’d been ‘set up’ with.
