I thought I’d share the attached link which is to a review of a new magazine Trader. This horrific-sounding magazine caters to young rich males who, by shear luck, immorality, aggressiveness, or family/fraternity connections, have made an unholy amount of money in trading but would like advice on how to make some more. And since the magazine is also trying to be a “men’s interest” (whatever that is, I’ve never known) magazine, apparently like Maxim, it also provides guidance on how to waste all that money on useless, outrageously over-priced toys or “adventurous” trips. (These trips would probably involve “wacky” and “edgy” things like skydiving, as long as there was no learning or intellectual growth involved.) Lastly, of course, as the dessert, it seems there is an element of misogyny, as evidenced by a cute column on how scumbag Kobe Bryant bought his way out of trouble by giving his loser wife a $4 million ring after cheating on her, a feature which was included because "We did some focus groups and the editorial guys realized: Traders get in trouble a lot. Sometimes they have to buy their way out of it.'' Simply amazing stuff. But my biggest problem is that, beyond the select few super-rich wierdos that this magazine directly caters to, I think sadly there is a significant proportion of the male population (e.g., half the population of the average business school) that admires this sort of person and dreams of becoming a vacuous, self-centered, super-rich, over-consuming, alpha-money-slut male.
