Weekend reading: Formula 1 in crisis

Weekend reading: Formula 1 in crisis post image

Some interesting financial and investing posts I ran across this week, plus a few decent articles from the newspapers.

I’ve noticed some of my favourite bloggers like Frugal Dad name their weekly roundups, so I thought I’d start doing the same with a nod to the dramatic F1 crisis. Not sure what the benefit is but it keeps things interesting!

Also exciting this week was receiving a link from Harvard professor Dani Rodrik.

It was an insight into how the Internet has democratised the flow of ideas. Read my post on Rodrik’s Capitalism 3.0 lecture for some extensive comments by reader Niklas, too.

From the money and investing blogs

Generally UK-related articles from other websites and papers

  • Martin Wolf in the FT has written a typical thought provoking article comparing the current downturn with the Great Depression.
  • Returning to structured products, this article by Hargreaves Landsdown does a good job of explaining more of the downsides.

    I’m a huge fan of your blog and was excited by the prospect of your insight into the Formula 1 crisis, but the only mention of relevance is the link to the BBC Sport article!

    Hi Mark, thanks for your kind words.

    Yes, I can see why you’d have thought that. This seems to be the tradition of these ‘editions’ – it’s just a labeling thing quite often. Perhaps they do it for Google search ranking reasons, though I can’t imagine link roundups ever come up in Google results.

    I’ll try and add at least a couple of words in the future, although I suspect you’re at least as insightful as me on F1 – I’ve only been following it for a few years, it seems you have to watch for at least a decade to get your stripes. 😉

    Thanks for the comments.
