People who know me know I love two things: Explaining stuff to people and getting stuff for free. So it gives me great pleasure to combine these two loves by explaining to you how you how you can get something from me for free.

And that free thing is... a copy of my new book, Man vs. Markets. It explains all the basics and some of the not-so-basics about the financial system. Think of it as one of my Whiteboard videos on paper – with a fancy cover.

Post a comment and you could get free stuff
All you have to do is post a comment on this page suggesting an idea for an upcoming episode of the Whiteboard. Each week starting Friday Sept. 1 and continuing for the next few months, I’ll pick one person at random who left a comment and send them a signed copy of my book. And I’ll use your best ideas for future Whiteboard videos.

So post your comments with ideas – we need them, because without ideas, there’ll be no Whiteboards, and that could leave us all very badly needing a drink!

Hi Paddy,
Please can you do a video on the Efficient Market Hypothesis. Thanks!

I would love to know the practical not the greedy reason why interest rates for savers are so much different than interest rates for lenders.

Thank you,
Roger Townley

I want your thoughts on why Facebook stock (price) continues to fall.

Hi Paddy,
Can you do a video on the Libor scandal?

Thanks Paddy for your continuous efforts and contributions. Your videos have always been great help in understanding current economic and financial issues, and which I go back to as a reference as I pursue my MBA course work.
One suggestion for a topic idea that I think would be helpful is explaining the two different economic ideologies in which democrats and republicans believe in. what would be the possible pros and cons for each? What would be the possible outcome and consequences for each side’s fiscal policies and views? And how would they impact the economy?

Stock Indices and how they are calculated

Hi Mr. Hirsch. I've been watching your videos a lot because I've been writing an EPQ (Extended Project Qualification) about the financial crisis. One thing I'm sure many people would like to know is what Synthetic CDOs are and how they affected the financial crisis. I know you haven't made a video about these and the ones already on the internet have terrible and convoluted explanations, with no simple metaphors like yours.

Once again, thank you very much for all of your help.

Please make a video, or even a series of videos, on how to trade stocks using technical analysis.

Hi Paddy!
I love your videos and have been learning from your analogies for almost a year - thank you! One video topic would be to explain the different approaches by Dems and Reps to address the Social Security reforms needed!

Hi Paddy.. I am sure that the book is brilliant.. just like the video podcasts..
My idea is on "intrinsic value".. every long term investor talks of it, but nobody goes in detail about it..makes investing look like a dark art or science..
Any word on intrinsic value based on Free Cash Flow, Comparables in M&A Transactions or competing companies will be appreciated..
