1 - The local chapter of the American Association of University Women (AAUW) is meeting in the Depot Room this afternoon, and I am privileged to be giving the talk. The topic is New Realities in the Global Economy, and we will focus largely on emerging markets. This is not my first time speaking to the AAUW; they are always an engaging and challenging audience. They keep the speaker on his or her toes, and that is a good thing!
2 - The President followed up his recent budget proposal with a new proposal to change corporate tax rates. It has some very interesting aspects to it, which you can read in the article below. It's not likely to get much traction in an election year, and that's a shame. Is it just me, or does it seem to you that our leaders in Washington ought to be able to talk things over -- even if they disagree -- and work toward a common goal that everyone shares?
3 - It is a common belief that "attitude is everything." It's the theme running throughout my book The Graduate's Book of Practical Wisdom (sorry for the shameless plug), and I believe it applies even to investing. If you'd like to see what that means, click on this week's video below.
Have a rock-em sock-em week!
