Dirty Money

I watched this week Netflix new series Dirty Money. It’s a Netflix Original Documentary Series exposing the greed, corruption, and crime spreading through our global economy. I found the series fascinating especially the episode about Valeant Pharmaceuticals, Donald Trump and HSBC. It’s probably one of the best documentaries I watched in the past few years.

The Warren Buffet series

I am a big fan of Warren Buffet and a big fan of Infographic, and this is the best of both worlds.
