Bruce Krasting goes after the Federal Reseve. He doesn't hold back: "I want the Fed to fail so miserably that they are marginalized for the next twenty years. I want Bernanke fired. I want the Fed disgraced." (Bruce Krasting)

 

How to do an IPO, the Groupon-Goldman Sachs way: "The hardest step is the first: getting aboard this money train in the first place. You go in with a huge pitchbook that tells the company how awesome they are, how awesomely you’d tell the world how awesome they are, and how awesome you are at IPOs, etc." (Dealbreaker)

 

Abolish the 30-year fixed-rate mortgage! "At heart, it comes down to this: the 30-year fixed-rate product is always going to shift a huge amount of interest-rate risk onto the government in one form or another." (Felix Salmon)
