July Mailbag: The Knowledge


Is investing just gambling? Is there a better way to end a soccer game? Are we responsible for the sins of our fathers? We Fools rush in on questions big and small on this month's mailbag. Take the Foolish Podcast Survey!
How's your memory? Or are you new around here? Well there are a few stories, told over the past 5 years, that we occasionally need to revisit. The evolution of business. Stocks that don't make you think. The origin story of the GKC. Today we flip through the RBI photo album and remember where we've been.
White privilege. Black tax. Systemic racism. These may be uncomfortable topics for conversation, but with a little trust, vulnerability, and humanity, we can and must talk about them. We're joined by Stephen Baldi, Dan Simons, and Vennard Wright to open that conversation, for the sake of healing, justice, and progress in our personal and professional lives.
Are airline credit card offers worthwhile? Do tech stocks really exist? Why do we love penalty kicks so much? Or are those just a bunch of stupid questions? All that, plus a halftime review for 5 Stocks Celebrating the 2018 World Cup.
It's America's birthday! It's The Motley Fool's birthday! Is it your birthday too? Either way, we've got presents, in the form of great quotes on business and life.
Is investing like a fine wine, getting better with age? Or is it like a protopian science fiction story, reflecting our best vision for our future? Of course, we'll choose both, and much more, on this month's mailbag.
