The Daily Reckoning

A new groundbreaking material recently discovered has the potential to change the world: Water filtration, cellular and battery technology, aircraft and automotive finishing will never be the same.

Russian scientists made an amazing scientific discovery in 2004 when they discovered Graphene; a layer of atoms in a honeycomb structure found in graphite. Graphene is the lightest, hardest and thinnest known material, surpassing even diamond in strength, and conducts electricity and heat with unsurpassed efficiency.

With new experiments and development in Graphene in the works, a whole world of possibilities awaits.

Find out what Graphene is, and how you can take advantage of this unique technology. Sign up for The Daily Reckoning.

The Daily Reckoning

It's hard to believe that more than ten years have gone by since we began writing The Daily Reckoning out of a Paris office back in July of 1999?

Since then, a lot has changed. We have seen the dot com boom and bust... a massive expansion of credit...real estate mania and meltdown?and epic highs and lows in the markets.

Nothing about the past ten years has been boring. And we have been there throughout, trying to help readers make some sense out of our global economy. And hopefully providing a few laughs along the way.

In short, we pen The Daily Reckoning each day -- for free -- to show you how to live well in uncertain times. We aim to make each article the most entertaining 15-minute read of your day.
