Bloodletting And Knights: A Medieval Guide To Investing


Investing can be a very complicated and confusing monster to try to tackle.  As a fellow investor, I understand that many perils, traps and mazes face young investors as they try to conquer the world of investing.  I found an interesting article today that relates many of the popular and obscure investing terms to medieval times.  Enjoy the read - I found it to be a humorous yet informative article!

Find the article HERE.

  1. This hilarious article was written to discuss various terms used in business/investing. I figured I would share it with you all, as it it funny and informative at the same time! Let me know what you think.

  2. Yeah, there's very little about the spirit of capitalism that doesn't remind one of feudalism, despite the change in form.

  4. Love your analogy, reminds me back in the days a few years ago when I was scrunched up in an armchair in the library reading rule no.1

    I was skipping p.e. class or something stupid, an learning something really great.

    Looking forward to reading more!

  5. very good post. I really like how you related the old days to our time. I always wondered what life was like back then, but I guess investing would still make you rich back then. I'll give you 5 bushels or apples for a cow since it's the winter. Slaughter cow in the summer and profit.
