Good investing reading
Are you an investor or a speculator? – WSJ
Jason Zweig, Wall Street Journal has a two-part article that delves into the question of whether one is an investor or a speculator.

I highly recommend reading Prof. Jayanth Varma’s blog if you are interested in reading on Indian economics and markets. He write this interesting article about how capital can easily flow out of India. Or, as he asks whether it is not happening already?
