For those interested, this course from The Great Courses has been recommended to me by a wise man, and it seems like a good Charlie Munger/worldly wisdom type of course (the video download version is currently on sale for $109.95): The Origin and Evolution of Earth: From the Big Bang to the Future of Human Existence -- Professor Robert M. Hazen

Another interview with Tren Griffin about his book on Charlie Munger [H/T Linc] (LINK)

Ben Bernanke was on CNBC talking about his book, which was released today: The Courage to Act: A Memoir of a Crisis and Its Aftermath

Operant Conditioning, Market Trends, and Small Bets: A 2012 vs. 2008 Case Study (LINK)

While Hussman has been saying similar things for a couple of years, all three of John Hussman, John Mauldin, and Richard Duncan have issued similar recession warnings over the last few days, and think we're basically heading into a downturn in both the economy and a further decline in the market. It's hard to predict anything like this, but all three were fairly accurate about things leading up to 2008, so I thought it was worth a mention, and maybe a reminder to think about how one's investments would fare in another very tough environment, whether or not it actually comes to pass.
