Weekend Reads

This week was hotter than usual – unseasonably warm in Chicago, unexpectedly warm iPads, and a few days of hot potato in the markets, most of which took a mid-week beating before bouncing back today.

  • The CME on Managing Risk (Youtube)
  • Facebook steps up to defend users from prying bosses, colleges (TNW)
  • Bridgewater bigwig Ray Dalio explains his take on deleveraging (Market Folly)

And just for fun:
