First off, let’s start with the most amazing thing I learned this week – MIT researchers have found a way to print solar cells on paper!
Now, isn’t that something – apparently it could already be done, but the new method is much better than the old one. They need special room, and equipment of course, but can then print the solar cells on any paper – even a newspaper!
Now, before you get too excited and start hunting for companies that make solar cells, let me temper you down with an article about a solar cell company – Evergreen Solar Cells declaring bankruptcy.
I wish every cool idea made money, but it doesn’t.
Something a little gloomy – The Stanford Prison Experiment – when I read about this the first time – I wasn’t sure if it really happened, or what sense to make of it. It’s a pretty impressive study, and the results truly surprised me.
Now, something more practical – Hemant has a great article on accidental insurance.
Chartered Club on how to save taxes by forming a HUF.
Value Research answers a reader’s question about reducing debt or investing money.
Economist asks if a country like India which is thinking of setting up its own international aid agency, should receive foreign aid.
Finally, here is an hour long interview of Warren Buffet where he talks about taxes, economy, housing, America’s AAA rating downgrade and others.
Enjoy your weekend!
