My weekly roundups typically link to blog posts/articles around the web. But recently I’ve accumulated a few noteworthy pdf documents that I wanted to point out.
A while back, I wrote a guest post for MoneyNing discussing John Bogle’s February testimony regarding the future of retirement for the American workforce. Here’s the testimony in its entirety. It’s worth the time to read.
Here’s what Form 1040 looked like back in 1913. 3 pages in total and 1 page of instructions. This must be what people are talking about when they say that they yearn for “simpler times.”
Ever wanted to read Benjamin Graham’s memoirs? Well, you’ll have to fork over $100 on Amazon. (It’s out of print, and it’s a bit of a collector’s item.) But the publisher has made a couple chapters available as a free excerpt. You’ll have to enter your email address, but as long as you uncheck the box, they don’t send you anything else. (Or at least, they haven’t sent anything to me in the 2 months since I downloaded it.)
Leo Babauta from ZenHabits wrote an excellent book about being more productive by focusing on fewer activities/goals. In case you missed it, he released an accompanying ebook entitled Thriving on Less about living frugally in order to be able to spend time (and money) on the things you really care about.
Hope you enjoy them.
