Quora – supercommunity of knowledge seekers

‘Put article title here’ has to be Quora. Quora is basically a platform where people can ask questions and answers those posted by others. This feature was once part of Linkedin but for some weird reason Linkedin has decided to remove it.

The quality of questions and answers on Quora has pretty much blown me away. There are also a few famous people answering questions as well. For those who thrive on knowledge this IS the social network to spend time on (and get rid of facebook addiction).

For finance enthusiasts I have found a few good Q/A threads which I am listing below.

Where can web startups learn about financial modeling that accounts for the important metrics and costs?

What are the best practices when modelling in Excel?

What should everyone know about investing?

What should everyone know about mergers and acquisitions?

How does one avoid blowups in (deep) value investing?

  1. Fascinated by Finance: A Quora book on Finance and Investing is a post in the Quora blog Zingfin.com. It covers almost 70 other blog posts ranging from topics like valuation, equity and bond investing, commodity investing, alternative investing and financial bubbles and crises. Although I haven’t finished reading it, I found it very informative and would recommend it to anyone interested in Finance and Markets.
