For the Love of Money Photo IN my last year on Wall Street my bonus was $3.6 million — and I was angry because it wasn’t big enough. I was 30 years old, had no children to raise, no debts to pay, no philanthropic goal in mind. When I Stop Believing in Fiction Like a late victorian clergyman sweating in the dark over his Doubts, I have moments when my faith in fiction falters and then comes to the edge of collapse.

Health - The best stats you've ever seen Even the most worldly and well-traveled among us will have their perspectives shifted by Hans Rosling.
