I've seen the threads about what books to read, but what about other publications that are out there to keep up with the most recent news.  What magazines or news papers are best (IBD, The Economist....)?

If you’re talking about industry news, I read a lot of them:

Investment Advisor

On Wall Street

Advisor Today

Finacial Advisor

Financial Planning

Research Mag

If you’re talking about daily market news, there’s really no limit. MSN, Yahoo Finance, WSJ Online, MarketWatch, etc.

Oldspice - has nothing really to do with current news, but for plain old brain candy, I like to read Trader magazine. It’s free & focuses mostly on uber-rich trader types. It has features on private jets, $25,000 watches, humidors, etc. I’m in a fairly poor, rural area, so I like to see how the other half lives. The funny thing is, I doubt that any traders actually read the magazine.

If you want to get a news feed set up, get your google account going with Google Reader, and throw in Bloomberg, WSJ, Financial Times, The Economist, BBC, and NPR for good measure.

Sports Illustrated, Psychology Today, The Atlantic, Readers Digest, Cigar Aficionado, Civil War Monthly, the wife’s Vogue … I think you learn more about investing and managing your prospects and clients by reading OUTSIDE industry publications (most of which I do read, too.)

I was going to say, as far as populist investing information: Money magazine, Fortune, Kiplinger, etc… You can find plenty of articles where they set 'em up, and you knock them down.  And quite  a few of my clients read those publications, which gives me a chance to respond to particularly good articles, or the ones where the author should be shot.

if you like tucker max, you have to read his book  “I hope they serve beer in Hell.”  It is very funny

another book that is a must read in my opinion, “The milllionaire next door”

  Is this really a good book?  What is it, just a bunch of funny stuff that happened to him or something?
