Haven’t had your fill of smart alecky Wall Street commentary from yours truly this week?
I gave an interview to Hiro Takei of Behind The Spread, a great new site loaded with interviews of Wall Street personalities. He asked some really interesting questions about being in the business and keeping up to speed with the other bloggers…
BTS: You have quite an extensive list of Blogroll. I suspect you don’t visit all of them everyday. What are some of the main blogs you visit or people you follow?
TRB: I actually rarely use the blogroll to check in with my fave sites. I must confess that I’m a Google Reader fanatic and I can get up to date on everyone’s stuff really efficiently with it, plus keep up with non-finance related subjects of interest to me. Many of the feeds that are tracked by my reader are history, art and science-related.
The blog that inspired me the most to put my own voice out there was Barry Ritholtz’s The Big Picture. He’s the best in the game from every angle and stands in a class of his own. You will learn more about economics in a month of reading his blog than in a semester of econ at most schools, at least as far as practical knowledge goes. Recently, I’ve been obsessing over The Pragmatic Capitalist and Market Folly as well. When I want culture with my finance, I go to Infectious Greed (Paul Kedrosky) or The Epicurean Dealmaker. When I want to chuckle, I read Dealbreaker and LOLFed. And when I want to have my mind blown, I turn to Money is the Way (Michael Fowkes).
