Substack and the great crash of 1929

I am tiring a new newsletter service.

I loved Tinyletter, and it’s minimalist style, but I needed a bit more analytics on my posts, and also formatting was not the best in the text editor.

Also, the last three newsletters that I’ve subscribed to are substack.


I have been on a book buying spree. I’ve ordered more than five books just this month.

One thing I love about living in the US is the public library system. I have always been able to access the best books without any charge. I can renew it multiple times and always have enough time to read them.

I have never been the kind to buy books(probably the frugal side of me). But I’ve come to the other side of it. Books have the potential to give an outsized return. It’s probably the best investment you can make. Granted that a lot of books are shit, but if you do even a tiny bit of research, you will able to avoid most of them.

These are the ones that I’ll be reading soon-

  • The Three-Body Problem

  • Sum

  • Infinite Retina

  • The big debt crisis Part 2

This brings me to the one I’m currently reading: The great crash of 1929.

I’m halfway through the book, and I love it!

It’s well written with a nice balance of wit and humor. Some parts of the book feel like a horror book. The best horror films are then ones where the monster is never revealed. Even at almost halfway, the monster(1929) is looming, you can feel it but can’t see it yet.
