Round Table Discussion – October 18

We are proud to present the first ModernGraham Round Table Discussion, to be held on Wednesday, October 18 at 2:00 Central Time.  This is an excellent opportunity for readers to gain an inside peek of the minds of some great financial minds!

How this works:

Readers may submit questions via comments left on this post or the contributor’s blogs, or by email to  Jon and I will compile the questions and moderate the discussion.  Please submit as many questions as you can think of.  This discussion can only be as interesting as the questions are.

The actual discussion will be held in this thread of our forum.  The thread will be open to the public to read, but only the participants will be allowed to post.

We are excited to have the following people contribute to the discussion:
