When I started out on OneMint it had 6 subscribers for what seemed like a very long time.
I used to check my Feedburner account everyday, and there it was Â – a big 6 – I used to wonder what I need to do get the seventh subscriber.
Then I did a guest post at another website, and the number increased to 15, but I can never forget that 6.
That’s why when I launched the forum I was hoping that it doesn’t get stuck at six, but it quite easily passed that number, and as it stands today – there are 49 members right now, and it’s growing steadily.
Please join the forum, and ask any questions you may have. I say any questions because lately I’ve fielded quite a few questions about blogging itself, so I know some of you are interested in things outside finance, and you’re welcome to ask those questions too.
As long as the discussion is civil – all topics are welcome.
With that said, let’s move to some great links from this week.
First up is this great piece by Ajay Shah on how jittery regimes fix prices. A lot of you ask about which blogs to follow, and Ajay Shah who is a leading Indian economist has the best economics blog in an Indian context in my opinion, and you should definitely give him a try.
Libya has allowed India to land two AI flights there everyday for 10 days and assist in evacuation of the 18,000 Indians present there.
The budget is of course the big news these days, but somehow I’ve never been able to get that interested in it. Regardless, I’m really interested in seeing FDI open in Indian multi brand retail.
My hope is that it will bring in large investments in cold storage, food distribution, and in the long run bring down food prices as well, so I was quite happy to see that the WSJ blog has a piece that says the Indian budget could have some good news for the retail sector in this regard.
And finally an interesting post from TFL about 7 different types of investors. I think I fall under the regular category. Check it out for yourself to see where you fall or better still create a category yourself.
Enjoy your weekend!
