1. Video of the Day I (above) is from the Wall Street JournalIndex Funds Are the New Kings of Wall Street — that accompanies an article in today’s print edition by the same name, here’s a slice:

Money managers that mimic the stock market just became the new titans of the fund-management world. Funds that track broad U.S. equity indexes hit $4.27 trillion in assets as of Aug. 31, according to research firm Morningstar, giving them more money than stock-picking rivals for the first-ever monthly reporting period. Funds that try to beat the market had $4.25 trillion as of that date. The passing of the asset crown is the latest chapter in one of the most dramatic transformations in the history of financial markets.

In the past decade, nearly $1.36 trillion in net flows were added to U.S. equity mutual funds and exchange-traded funds that mimic market indexes while some $1.32 trillion fled higher-costing actively managed counterparts. That shift lowered the price of investing for individuals, reduced the influence of stock pickers and turned a handful of Wall Street outsiders into the biggest power brokers in the industry.

2. Video of the Day II (above) is from the Clean Energy Alliance — Renewable Portfolio Standard Scam (Part 1):

Does your state have a Renewable Portfolio Standard? Not sure? That’s not surprising. It’s one of those government programs that sucks money out of your wallet while you’re not looking. But 29 states have one, and if your state does, you should get familiar with your RPS, because it’s costing you a lot of money every year — $30 billion.

3. Video of the Day III (below) is from CBC news —  How young Canadians are coping with eco-anxiety — a look at how young Canadians are coping with anxiety stemming from the climate crisis hysteria.
