Tis the gift to be loving, tis the best gift of all
Like a quiet rain it blesses where it falls
And with it we will truly believe
Tis better to give than it is to receive

Here it is, again, with plenty of time remaining for you to deploy capital: hedgeless_horseman’s Twelve Days of Christmas shopping list for the ZeroHedge readers in your life.
1) Hell’s Angels: A Strange and Terrible Saga, by Hunter S. Thompson $12

6) Dave Ramsey’s Financial Peace University $119
