Dividend stocks with pep
"Dividend investors tend to be a conservative bunch. But sometimes it's worth looking for stocks with pep. That's why this week I scoured the TSX for Canadian dividend stocks with momentum."
Financial savvy is not something schools can teach
"The right conclusion is not that there is nothing to be done. Far from it. We can and should divert the money that is about to be put into personal finance education into better mathematics education." [Education]
Why don't restaurants charge for reservations?
"If economists owned popular restaurants like State Bird, they would take one look at the long lines and raise prices. After all, the overwhelming demand is pretty clear. Or at the very least, given how reservations disappear like Coachella tickets, they would start charging for them. In fact, since restaurants do not do this, a number of startups in San Francisco and New York City have started to sell reservations to users, often by reserving tables and scalping them." [Pricing]
Hard money is not a mistake
"Aggregate wealth is held by risk averse individuals who don't individually experience aggregate outcomes. Prospective outcomes have to be extremely good and nearly certain to offset the insecurity soft money policy induces among individuals at the top of the distribution, people who have much more to lose than they are likely to gain. It's not because they're bad people. Diminishing marginal utility, habit formation and reference group comparison, the zero-sum quality of insurance against systematic risk, and the tendency of regression towards the mean, all make soft money a bad bet for the wealthy even when it is a good bet for the broader public and the macroeconomy." [Behaviour]
