Here’s what I’ve been reading this morning:
- There is constantly bad news headlines swirling around. Today it feels like it’s more so than usual, but Tom writes about a similar situation from 50 years ago with the point being that the news is always bad. That doesn’t mean it’s a reason to jump out of the market.
