A private investor for 20+ years, I manage private portfolios and write about investing. You can read my market musings on three different sites: 1) The Deipnosophist, dedicated to teaching the market's processes and mechanics; 2) Investment Poetry, a subscription site dedicated to real time investment recommendations; and 3) Seeking Alpha, a combination of the other two sites with a mix of reprints from this site and all-original content. See you here, there, or the other site!

Dirt! The Movie

The engaging documentary, Dirt! The Movie, employs droll animation and interviews with everyone from Nobel laureates to humble farmers, in order to demonstrate that dirt is "the living, breathing skin of the Earth." Yet it also makes a convincing case that years of destructive practices have yielded a bitter harvest: starvation, drought, floods, and global warming.

I enjoyed the documentary last week, and was equal parts impressed and charmed.
