"When people feel secure about their own ability, or happy with themselves, they aren't as vulnerable to envy. You don't mind hearing that other people have received excellent feedback if you have too - and it's not because they're not getting ahead of you, it's because envy is other people's successes making you aware of your insecurities about your own."
By Green on Surviving the success of others


"It's time to end all the fix markets - Libor set the stage and gold markets reinforce the need. Why continue the fiction of a committee or panel setting the daily price in large liquid markets?"
By WashMichael on Gold: In search of a new standard
