What We Are Reading...

Yesterday, Bloomberg’s Miles Weiss has a nice article on PayPal-founder-cum-hedge-fund-manager Peter Thiel and his new investment decision (focus less on global macro and more on what he does best—tech investing). What the article didn’t mention was that one of his other projects is funding the building of independent, Libertarian island colonies. Don't believe us, see The Billionaire King of Techtopia (Details Magazine)

And in case you missed the, here are some other good reads:
