UF Weekend Reads

October 12, 2012

By Sam Forgione

This week’s Weekend Reads may drive you back to the big news of the week: The Debates.

Just as the candidates’ tone and tenor seemed to drive judgments as to who won and lost, some stories were written about sparring between politicians and bankers, billionaires on whether a bankrupt Mexican company should be let off the hook, the banks and the foreclosed-upon, and the more milder subject of volatility investing. In the case of the Foreign Policy and DealBook links, the attitudes of the parties involved seem more important than their logic. And a winner and a loser probably won’t come to you. At least here, unlike in the voting booths, you can stay undecided.

 

From Foreign Policy:

Mohamed El-Erian writes that politicians and bankers should stop putting each other down and start averting the next crisis.

From DealBook:

Two highflying investors bump heads over a soured credit investment, Azam Ahmed writes.

From ProPublica:

The “Independent Foreclosure Review” may bear some fingerprints of a big bank, Paul Kiel writes.

From Institutional Investor:

Investors who take the path-of-least resistance could be pleasantly surprised, Adrian Banner writes.
