The Khan Academy and Wealth Destruction

A friend knows that I am always on the look out for interesting sites where folks do lectures explaining things and he suggested that I check out the Khan Academy since it seems to have a plethora of information on pretty much, everything. I have included a two-part video on Wealth Destruction from Housing Bubbles, which is at least thought-provoking (I will open the floor to others to discuss whether it is correct or not) (go to the bottom of this post to find the videos).

I strongly suggest you check out my Twitter Feed, I have been told it is quite entertaining, and I will be attempting to add my own personal commentary on life in there as well. What did you miss if you haven’t subscribed yet? Here is a taste of some of the OBG (Oldie but Goody) gems I posted:

  •  In my early days I used to brag about my prowess (at installing computer crap), as I did here with Investment: High Tech (spoiler alert: has nothing to do with investing).
  • I have sat on both sides of the hiring “experience” and a pet peeve I have is folks thinking “business casual” means shorts and flip-flops (for an interview) thus I ranted Job Hunting Hints: Dress for the Job Fair.
  • I do have a sister blog (where I write occasionally) where I write about the business of blogging, thus Guest Posts: Please Stop the Madness addressed those who wish to write a guest post on this esteemed tome.
  • In 2009 One in Seven of us Was a Senior Citizen, that number is decreasing (quickly) (i.e. we are all getting older).
  • The Quarterly Financial Status Report is an old idea of mine, where you publish (to your spouse usually) a quarterly financial status report to force yourself to figure out where you stand, it will help you feel more in control of things (financially).
  • One of my most brutally honest posts is my Top 5 Investing Regrets which you should read just so you don’t make the same dumb-ass moves I have done in my life.

    Will have to check out Khan Academy! Business casual has always seemed like a ill-phrased term to me…there’s nothing casual about it. That doesn’t excuse not knowing what it means, though. Following on twitter! 🙂

  2. Modest Money – I have just recently started a new personal finance blog: Here I plan on teaching people to better manage their money through modest living. I will be exposing common money wasters and poor financial decisions. Together we can help each other take control of our money.

    I’ve always been meaning to check out the Khan Academy more some day. It seems like such a cool concept to be sharing so much quality knowledge like that. Unfortunately it’s just tough to fit that into a busy life. I’m gonna have to go on a learning binge when I’m more caught up on things.

      I’d say do 1 or 2 topics a week and that is good enough. I have watched a bunch of the finance stuff and am watching a few of the Math ones as well, really good stuff, just time consuming!
