Where Are the Customers' Yachts: or A Good Hard Look at Wall Street (Wiley Investment Classics)
"Once I picked it up I did not put it down until I finished. . . . What Schwed has done is capture fully-in deceptively clean language-the lunacy at the heart of the investment business."
-- From the Foreword by Michael Lewis, Bestselling author of Liar's Poker
". . . one of the funniest books ever written about Wall Street."
-- Jane Bryant Quinn, The Washington Post
"How great to have a reissue of a hilarious classic that proves the more things change the more they stay the same. Only the names have been changed to protect the innocent."
-- Michael Bloomberg
"It's amazing how well Schwed's book is holding up after fifty-five years. About the only thing that's changed on Wall Street is that computers have replaced pencils and graph paper. Otherwise, the basics are the same. The investor's need to believe somebody is matched by the financial advisor's need to make a nice living. If one of them has to be disappointed, it's bound to be the former."
-- John Rothchild, Author, A Fool and His Money, Financial Columnist, Time magazine
Humorous and entertaining, this book exposes the folly and hypocrisy of Wall Street. The title refers to a story about a visitor to New York who admired the yachts of the bankers and brokers. Naively, he asked where all the customers' yachts were? Of course, none of the customers could afford yachts, even though they dutifully followed the advice of their bankers and brokers. Full of wise contrarian advice and offering a true look at the world of investing, in which brokers get rich while their customers go broke, this book continues to open the eyes of investors to the reality of Wall Street.
Left Side of the Pantry (Inside), Before
Grains, pulses, and baking stock. Overflow from the front. The dry goods are still in pretty good shape. Those lock-n-lock storage containers are great; they seal very tightly. We were plagued by a whole family of mice this winter (we will have to put up fine-mesh screens EVERYWHERE under the house to possibly keep them out) and they totally ignored this pantry even though we've been attacked by mice here in the past. Worth every penny of the investment, and stackable too. Working on: eating our way through the rather immense backstore. As a celiac I need to keep a crazy variety of flours on hand if I want to bake, but I am trying to reduce my varieties of rice and buy special rice fresh only when I'm using it. I also need to find a bigger box for the vitamins or it will be ugly in a few months. I used removable labels for the jars and they pop off occasionally. Need to replace with stickier labels. And the masking tape... uh... well it does keep things from flying off the shelves if they aren't closed too hard. I have no idea why these pantry shelves were installed upside-down, but it'll be easier to tack on a strip of molding than to take them off and put them on right. The stuff in back flies off more easily than the stuff in front, which is part of why this shelf sees little real use. The other reason is: out of sight, out of mind. I should find little-used things we still want in the kitchen to live here, that are not food and won't go bad if we forget them. They need to not be fragile too, though.
1982 Toyota Starlet 1.0(?!) c.1996/97
Seen parked up at Foxhall Stadium and with some very short circuit inspired modifications, I was expecting to see that this Starlet had come off the road and would then have presumed it had become a hot rod or stock car. But, DVLA says it's on a SORN declaration so someone is still looking after it. Good investment, as 3dr Starlets now fetch good money*. Apparently it's only a 1-litre. *5dr's don't however, as I know from trying to sell mine. However they do drive very, very nicely, and I'm pleased that the chap I sold it to still has it and takes it to shows.
