Free Money? No Thanks!

  There’s a famous experiment, that has been repeated many times in slightly differing formats, that involves someone trying to give free money to random strangers. Sometimes they offer them the notes and try to convince them that there is no catch. Sometimes they just leave the money in clear view with a sign saying it is free.

Usually they try to ignore whoever is conducting the experiment – as you might expect if someone was asking them for money. If … Continue reading

Good Trades and Bad Trades

I’ve a quick question for you: What is the difference between a good trade and a bad trade? Seems pretty simple – a good trade is one where you win a profit, a bad trade is one where you lose. Right?
