Welcome to the CorpRaider Blog.  I am not an actual “Corporate Raider” or activist investor.  I am, however, focused on minimizing principal-agent problems that investors in publicly traded companies face.  I also grew up in the 80’s.  Incentives matter (especially when applied to smart, greedy people).

I will spend some time discussing the impact of incentives and psychology (and some optimization techniques) in personal finance as well.

I plan to use this site to create a record of my thoughts about investing and personal finance (mostly for my own future evaluation).  I will also try to compile links to blogs and other resources which I find informative and relevant.

Hopefully, we can keep learning, behave ethically, rationally, and intelligently to accumulate some knowledge and wealth over time.  I hope that you will find the information here useful and perhaps even entertaining!
