AP Images “Because they have a limited history, they are much more likely to change their behavior due to a single year’s performance in the markets than an older person, who might have several decades of experience,” says Stefan Nagel, an associate professor of finance at Stanford University's Graduate School of Business. Low returns in the 1970s caused younger investors to be more risk averse even into the 1980s: "They pulled their money out of the stock market at higher rates than older investors, who still had memories of better returns in the 1950s and 1960s and were therefore more confident that the market would rebound." 13 Ways The Recession Has Changed How Millennials View Work

You're probably right. Or you could be like me, a single young male living on his own, never washes hands, cleans kitchen once every other week, ignores best before dates, forgets to throw away old food (and leave it in the fridge until I finally notice), have a cat running around the house. I have never had food poisoning. Guess either I built up a strong enough immune system, or I'm doing just the bare minimum so that I don't get sick....
post written by: Marc Chernoff Email When you stop chasing the wrong things you give the right things a chance to catch you. As Maria Robinson once said, “Nobody can go back and start a new beginning, but anyone can start today and make a new ending.” Nothing could be closer to the truth.

These attacks usually appear on other people’s blogs, and (as long as they’re rational) I try to repost them on my own. Doing this helps prevent “flame wars” (an escalating exchange of nasty cyberdialogue), because I am listening to and stating their opinions, after all. Outside of the Internet, the same rules apply.

Background Greene initially formulated some of the ideas in The 48 Laws of Power while working as a writer in Hollywood and observing that today's power elite shared similar traits with powerful figures throughout history. In 1995, Greene worked as a writer at Fabrica, an art and media school, and met a book packager named Joost Elffers. Greene pitched a book about power to Elffers and six months later, Elffers requested that Greene write a treatment. Although Greene was unhappy in his current job, he was comfortable and saw the time needed to write a proper book proposal as too risky. However, at the time Greene was rereading his favorite biography about Julius Caesar and took inspiration from Caesar's decision to cross the Rubicon River and fight Pompey, thus inciting the Great Roman Civil War. Greene would follow Caesar's example and write the treatment, which later became The 48 Laws of Power. He would note this as the turning point of his life.
