Morgan Housel at the Motley Fool has a post up that is the result of a great deal of work. Housel notes that it serves as the rough outline of a book, 500 Things you Need to know About Investing, he was planning to write. It certainly looks like a book I would have read. You should definitely check it out. I selected, somewhat at random, 4 of the 122 items on the list. Housel writes:
93. No investment points are awarded for difficulty or complexity. Simple strategies can lead to outstanding returns.
94. The president has much less influence over the economy than people think.
95. However much money you think you’ll need for retirement, double it. Now you’re closer to reality.
96. For many, a house is a large liability masquerading as a safe asset.
Those are great and there are 118 more to read. So we my not have Housel’s book, but we do have this article. Bookmark it and return from time to time because you will not be able to take it all in just in one sitting. In the meantime here’s hoping Housel is at work on his “real” book.
