    I've clicked Reply rather than Edit to focus on what I consider a key point in discussion of economics, especially valuations.

    Obviously I don't deny the relevance of Money, which in today's...

    But so what if people made $1 billion in paper gains? A temporary swing only is of value if you sell during the swing. In the long run the market will revert to where it should be and the gains...

    I wonder if there should be a thread where each TFTer who wants to posts a brief summary of their own "manifesto." I would explain why I still consider myself a centrist while often taking the...

    MTG's district is not a beneficiary of typical gerrymandering. In a simple example like

    But stock market values can be amplified hugely with little money involved. If a small group of traders push the value of GameStop from $50 to $100, all the stockholders who did NOT trade see their...

    Consider a U.S.A. analog of this situation. Each of the U.S. states has a legislature which passes state laws, and also is subject to Congress-passed laws, with Congress reporting to the natonwide...

    Did you forget the GOP in the House had over 100 votes to reject election results in multiple states?

    Yes, some of the wealth is being used to hike prices of cryptocurrencies (and related hyper-modern "asset" classes)!

    This is neither an offer to sell, nor an offer to buy, nor a solicitation of...

    Shame ZiprHead! :) That video is from 2017. Surely you understand that, just as pre-Copernican European thinkers thought the laws of motion differed between Heaven and Earth, so an Administration...

    To keep this in perspective, the U.S. stock market overall has recovered from the recent dip and is near its all-time high. 10-year Treasury yield is up from a year ago but is still lower than at...

    I've not read the thread — the very title, absurdly implying that Biden and the Ds, rather than Trump and the Rs, are the side that suppresses truth is nothing but a joke's punchline — but the thread...

    It was inappropriate to levy this charge against a foreigner. Sorry.

    In fact, almost any foreigner news-savvy enough to voice views on American politics is probably less ignorant than many...

    Yes I was concerned about Trump too. Perhaps I did not express my lament on these fora but I was concerned. As I said earlier how do you manage to find such candidates? You give the voters such...

    The U.K. also has weird inequity IIUC. In 2019 Wales, with only 4.9% of the population, had 6.2% of the seats in House of Commons. Why?

    None of this matters.

    Obama could have been born in Brazil, while his mother yelled "Alluh Akbar". She was a U.S. citizen and that makes Obama eligible to be voted in as President.

    Ordinary Linear Regression

    In my posts, I try to achieve a balance between rigor and a simple intuitive presentation.
    For this post I sacrifice rigor, and just try to outline why linear regression is elegant!
