As much as I don’t like Trump, nor warm to his crass bellicosity or his more simplistic views, it is hard to argue with much of the Leading Article (‘The Trump Card’) in The Spectator this week. He’s thriving, we’re declining. A thread with key excerpts #WeekendReading👇[1]
From the piece: “The day after Britain voted to leave the European Union, Donald Trump arrived by helicopter at Turnberry, his golf course in Scotland. The financial markets were in crisis and David Cameron had resigned in a panic.” [2]
From the piece: “The Dutch PM, Mark Rutte, said that Britain had ‘collapsed: politically, monetarily, constitutionally and economically’.

My take: Rutte regularly gets depicted by the BBC as Britain’s closest friend. Here he was keen to kick us. With friends like these... [3]

#LearningTogether
1 How did our species succeed in the battle for dominance? Why did our foraging ancestors come together to create cities? How did we come to believe in gods, nations & human rights; to trust money, books & laws; & to be enslaved by bureaucracy, consumerism & pursuit of happiness?
2 ABOUT 13.5 BILLION YEARS ago, matter, energy, time and space came into being in what is known as the Big Bang. The story of these fundamental features of our universe is called physics.

DYK: The oil palm tree—Elaeis guineensis—is not native to Asia but comes from West & central Africa. At the heart of the “sustainable #palmoil” debate though are #Indonesia & #Malaysia, which account for 85% of all production. 📷: young #palm in Thailand

Atomic Habits by @JamesClear week-2
(Have initiated a few changes in the routine following the principles of this book, so far so good. Hope they will turn into part of habits)
#WeekendReading
#LearningTogether
1. It’s not about any single accomplishment. It is about the cycle of endless refinement and continuous improvement. Ultimately, it is your commitment to the process that will determine your progress.
2 If you’re having trouble changing your habits, the problem isn’t you. The problem is your system. Bad habits repeat themselves again and again not because you don’t want to change, but because you have the wrong system for change.

Back to weekend reading after another long break and restarting with Atomic Habits by @JamesClear this week.
Daily action builds habits, habits build life.
This is such a simple yet powerful book, should be included in school syllabus.

1 A habit is a routine or behavior that is performed regularly—and, in many cases, automatically.
2 changes that seem small and unimportant at first will compound into remarkable results if you’re willing to stick with them for years. We all deal with setbacks but in the long run, the quality of our lives often depends on the quality of our habits.

Week 3
#WeekendReading #LearningTogether
1. Selling options randomly may result in about 80 percent winners, but one or two in the 20 percent of losers could end up with substantial losses.
2. properly managed option writing portfolio should allow its owner to sleep well at night, should be low maintenance, and should be predominantly absent of heart-pounding, gut-wrenching decisions.

1 Just because an
option has high volatility does
not mean that it is a good option
to sell. And just because an
option has low volatility, it
does not mean that it is a poor
option to sell.
2 Unless you love
to gamble, buying options is a losing proposition.

Option Selling is the in thing so it'll be
The Complete Guide to Option Selling by James Cordier and Michael Gross

Week 1
#WeekendReading #LearningTogether
1 It is estimated that anywhere from 75 to 80 percent of all
options held through expiration will indeed expire worthless.
Furthermore, it is estimated that only 10 percent or less of all options
will ever be exercised.
2 "Option selling has unlimited
risk” is all that most investors know about the concept. The term
unlimited risk is enough to cause most investors to cross it off their list
of potential investment strategies without further exploration.

Skin In The Game-Hidden Asymmetries in Daily Life by Nassim Nicholas Taleb

Week 1

#LearningTogether
1 Skin in the Game is about four topics in one: a) uncertainty and the reliability of knowledge (both practical and scientific, assuming there is a difference), or in less polite words bull***t detection, b) symmetry in human affairs, that is, fairness, justice, responsibility...
2 ...and reciprocity, c) information sharing in transactions, and d) rationality in complex systems and in the real world. That these four cannot be disentangled is something that is obvious when one has…skin in the game.

A Mind for Numbers- How to Excel at Math and Science by Barbara Oakley

Week 2
#WeekendReading
#LearningTogether
1 There are two major memory systems:
Working memory—like a juggler who can keep only four items in the air.
Long-term memory—like a storage warehouse that can hold large amounts of material, but needs to be revisited occasionally to keep the memories accessible.
2 Spaced repetition helps move items from working memory to long-term memory.

A Mind for Numbers by Barbara Oakley

Very good to learn about how to study, especially useful if you have school going kids at home

Week 1

#LearningTogether
1 Surprisingly, your brain can also work on a problem even while you are sleeping and are not aware of anything. But it does this only if you concentrate on trying to solve the problem before falling asleep.
2 Students most commonly use the strategy of repeated reading—simply reading through notes over & over. We & other researchers have found that this passive & shallow strategy often produces minimal or no learning. We call this “labor in vain”.

1 It’s a rare day when a journalist says, “The market rose today for any one of a hundred different reasons, or a mix of them, so no one knows.”
2 Scientists must be able to answer the question “What would convince me I am wrong?” If they can’t, it’s a sign they have grown too attached to their beliefs.
