My Picks (vs. Most Popular)

When you post — on average — twice a day for a couple years, they can’t all be zingers.

But after some 3,000 or so posts and drafts (yes, I’ve got another couple hundred posts teed up), at least a few have been spot-on, as they say:  well-written, insightful, and full of original, compelling analysis.

And in the case of (still) needed Wall Street reform, all too topical today.

So, which ones am I proudest of?

Here’s a good start (note:  the “Top Ten” posts by popularity are on the right side of this page; you’ll note that there is a little overlap):

10.  “Freakonomics” Rebuttal.

9.  “The Bob Newhart Economy.”

8.  “A Financial Gettysburg Address.”

7.  “(Un)Employment in the Year 2112.”

6.  “Goldman Sachs:  ‘It’s Not My Dog.”

5.  “Real Estate Euphemisms.”

4.  “Warren Buffett Names 87 Year-Old to be Heir Apparent.”

3.  “Home Seller’s Golden Rule.”

2.  “Nurse, I Need a Price Reduction, Stat!!”

1.  “Realtor Prayer.”

Honorable Mention:  “Realtor Job Description“; “Groupon for Underwater Homeowners“; “Edina Realty Steals a Page from Southwest Airlines, the NFL, etc.”; “The Wall Street Journal Whiffs on Warren“; “Is Shiller Right About Trills, GDP?”

Thanks for watching reading!
