Weekend reading: The house that Jack built

What caught my eye this week. H ard to believe now, but when Monevator was born in the summer of 2007, passive investing with tracker funds was still a minority pursuit in Britain. Few investors did it. Newspapers and magazines rarely wrote about it, except in a “oh if you can’t be bothered you could buy an index fund and just accept the market return (you loser)” sort of way. The financial crisis didn’t help – it’s hard to sell index tracking when the index has just fallen 50%! All the talk w...

Who could benefit when biggest utility falls apart?

If there’s one classic line in the controversial movie “Vice,” it probably comes early in the film, when then-Vice President Richard Cheney is portrayed thinking about the World Trade Center attacks of 9-11 as “an opportunity,” rather than a tragedy. So it might be today in California, where tragedies partly of its own making afflict the state’s largest utility, whose chief executive has left the firm just when it says it will declare bankruptcy. Pacific Gas & Electric Co. faces as much as $29 b...

Bill and Melinda Gates say they've found something better at curbing immigration than a wall

According to the Gates Foundation, fewer babies and toddlers are dying than ever before: the global mortality rate for children under five has declined by more than 50% since 1990. This is mostly because of better public-health initiatives: more vaccines, polio eradication efforts, and better maternal and child healthcare. But the Gates' are worried that as rich countries turn "inward," they'll stop funding some life-saving health campaigns around the world, making the globe less peaceful and ...

MacKenzie Bezos deserves half of Jeff Bezos' fortune because there would be no Amazon without her (AMZN)

MacKenzie was part of Amazon's early team, helping to come up with the name and serving as its first accountant. But there's another reason she deserves half of the $137 billion Amazon fortune. Jeff Bezos, the world's wealthiest p...

If MacKenzie Bezos gets half of Jeff Bezos' fortune, she'd become the fourth-richest person in the world — and he'd fall from the No. 1 spot

Is LexBlog making the blogging dream come true?

At the end of each year Bill Gates takes stock of his life and his work. This year, Gates shared his thoughts with us on his blog, Gates Notes. Every Christmas when I was a kid, my parents would send out a card with an update on what the family was up to. Dad’s law firm is growing, Mom’s volunteer work is going strong, the girls are doing well in school, Bill is a handful. Some people think it is corny, but I like the tradition. These days, at the end of each year, I still enjoy taking s...

The math problem that could change the world: Does P = NP?

The Millennium Prize Problems are a set of seven unsolved mathematical problems laid out by the Clay Mathematical Institute, each with a $1 million prize for those who solve them.One of these problems asks whether P = NP. Put simply, this asks whether computationally hard problems actually contain hidden, computationally easy solutions. This, however, is a major simplification.Proving that P does not equal NP would be a major milestone, and it's the result that most computer scientists expect. H...

California to phase in electric, fuel-cell transit buses: regulators

California air quality regulators voted on Friday to require that transit buses have zero emissions beginning in 2029, another step by the liberal-leaning state that sets it apart from the environmental policies of the Trump administration. The California Air Resources Board voted unanimously on the proposal to ramp up the use of battery electric or fuel-cell buses until 2029, at which point all new transit buses will have to be zero-emission vehicles. The move away from diesel buses will be a...
