First, the series on Valuation will fire back up shortly: I ended up going to NYC for 5 days last week and the wheels fell off the study wagon… meaning I fell rapidly behind on my actual homework in the Valuation course so I’ve been frantically trying to catch up, thus no update since the last post on the Risk Free Rate. I came across this English translation of the foreword to the Chinese version of Poor Charlie’s Almanack by Li Lu. You can find it on this link through the internet archives, but I thought I’d post it here in case it ends up disappearing. Everything below is a copy and paste from the original article. Enjoy!
