Super cool letter from one of the founding fathers of the science of finance, Harry Markowitz.  Harry’s article called Portfolio Selection in 1952 began the shift from something called economics to a new thing called finance.

Life-changing book reveals some of the most important conclusions in science

Dr. Anthony M. Criniti IV extracts significant findings from newly discovered connections between biology, economics, finance, and survivalism in “The Survival of the Richest”

PHILADELPHIA – In “The Necessity of Finance,” Dr. Anthony M. Criniti IV taught that learning the science of finance is necessary for individuals, groups, and organizations to survive. Survival’s role was clearly mentioned there, but a major question was left unanswered: What is more important than learning how to survive? Over the years, he realized that if he truly wanted to better understand the necessity of economics and finance, then first he must thoroughly understand the necessity of survivalism. With unprecedented determination, Dr. Criniti sets out in “The Survival of the Richest” (ISBN 098845954X) to argue that wealth has always been the true link between survival and prosperity.

I commend a group called FIRE (Financial Independence, Retire Early). Please remember that finance is your root subject. If you really want to be “financially independent”, learning finance is the correct path. FIRE is always welcome home in finance!

Life-changing book reveals some of the most important conclusions in science

Dr. Anthony M. Criniti IV extracts significant findings from newly discovered connections between biology, economics, finance, and survivalism in “The Survival of the Richest”

PHILADELPHIA – In “The Necessity of Finance,” Dr. Anthony M. Criniti IV taught that learning the science of finance is necessary for individuals, groups, and organizations to survive. Survival’s role was clearly mentioned there, but a major question was left unanswered: What is more important than learning how to survive? Over the years, he realized that if he truly wanted to better understand the necessity of economics and finance, then first he must thoroughly understand the necessity of survivalism. With unprecedented determination, Dr. Criniti sets out in “The Survival of the Richest” (ISBN 098845954X) to argue that wealth has always been the true link between survival and prosperity.

Dr. Criniti began his quest to find the answer to a simple question, but was forced to detour through various related subjects, such as biology, genocide, and the martial sciences. His difficult journey led him to confront some of life’s most important questions. What is life and death? What role does the struggle play in survival? Why survive? Some serious questions about the human race also needed to be addressed. What are we capable of? Who are we?

Readers will be engaged in the most comprehensive overview of the science of survival and will find explanations for this book’s disturbing scientific conclusions. Some examples of these conclusions include, but are not limited to, that the goals of economics and finance are interrelated with the survival goals of economic and financial entities; that finance is the precursor to economics; that being wealthier increases your probability of continuously surviving and prospering by providing you the greatest options to obtaining survival essentials; that wealthier entities have the option to help other economic or financial entities (including nonhuman ones) survive and prosper, particularly through the concepts of the survival and the prosperity by a third party; that the management of money, and the technology that it can buy, is an advanced, necessary stage in the process of evolution—that is, the evolution of evolution; that the survival of the richest is a more accurate concept than the survival of the fittest; and that all humanity should have the united goal of maximizing our wealth for our survival on this planet and beyond.

“It is important to remember though that just like individuals, groups, and nations, in general, if the inhabitants of a wealthy planet like Earth decide not to continue to maximize wealth, then they automatically, by default, choose to increase Earth’s chances of moving in the direction of the edge of survival, and ultimately, closer to death,” says Dr. Criniti. “As demonstrated earlier, more wealth provides more options for the wealthiest entities to survive better; it does not necessarily mean that those entities will choose the best options. If life on our planet is to continue to prosper, then we must exercise our options for better survival and do it together!”

New ETF Offers Exposure to Emerging Markets Excluding China
NEW YORK, Sept. 2, 2015, Emerging Global Advisors (EGA) today launched its EGShares EM Core ex-China exchange-traded fund (ETF). The new fund (TICKER: XCEM) provides broad exposure to emerging markets excluding China and Hong Kong, allowing investors to preserve or supplement emerging market portfolios without increasing their exposure to China.
“In today’s market environment, some investors have noted that China comprises a significant portion of broad-based emerging market benchmarks. That portion is growing as index funds in the category plan to increase their allocations to China through A-shares,” said EGA President and Founder Robert C. Holderith. “We launched XCEM to deliver core emerging market exposure independently of China, giving investors an option to refine their portfolios in light of other China holdings or market developments.”
XCEM tracks the EGAI Emerging Markets ex-China Index. The index is free-floating, market cap-weighted and ranked in line with broad-based, market cap-weighted conventional indices. It provides exposure to 20 countries, including South Korea, Taiwan, Brazil, India and South Africa.
“The XCEM fund is a strong fit for investors who are looking to be more conservative in their approach to China without sacrificing opportunities in other emerging markets,” said EGA Managing Director Jay McAndrew. “It also addresses the needs of investors who have a point of view on China and are looking for greater control over the size and style of their exposure to this market.”

Disclosures
Carefully consider the Fund’s investment objectives, risk factors and charges and expenses before investing. This and other information can be found in the Fund’s prospectus, which may be obtained by calling + 1 888 800 4347 or by visiting the Fund’s website egshares.com to view or download a prospectus. Read the prospectus carefully before investing. Investing involves risk, including possible loss of principal.
Emerging market investments involve risk of capital loss from unfavorable fluctuation in currency values, from differences in generally accepted accounting principles, from economic or political instability in other nations or increased volatility and lower trading volume. This Fund will concentrate its investments in issuers of one or more particular industries to the same extent that its Underlying Index is so concentrated and to the extent permitted by applicable regulatory guidance. Concentration risk results from maintaining exposure to issuers conducting business in a specific industry. Small-cap and mid-cap companies generally will have greater volatility in price than the stocks of large companies due to limited product lines or resources or a dependency upon a particular market niche. One cannot invest directly in an index.
ETF shares are bought and sold at market price (not NAV) and are not individually redeemed from the Fund.
