Investing With Mrs. Bennett

Guy Monson, a fund manager at Sarasin, a fund-management group, has written "The Wisdom of Mrs Bennet," (Sarasin Investment Comment, April 2003). In this paper he uses Pride & Prejudice to "illustrate the similarities in the investment climate between the early 19th century and the beginning of the 21st." ("Cents and sensibility," The Economist, 5/15)

Mrs. Bennett's nerves would be quite excitable in this economy, I daresay. Thanks, Zeebah, for the link!
