Seth Klarman's Margin of Safety

Post by Smith1776 » Sun Sep 24, 2023 5:20 pm

Seth Klarman's Margin of Safety is a book that literally sells for thousands of dollars online. It's quite rare, as only a few hundred copies were ever printed.

Here's a PDF version that I found for anyone that is interested.

The book is currently $2500 USD on Amazon? when it's available as a free DL..?

Have you stumbled onto some sort of money laundering scheme?

There isn’t really an answer in this article, just an acknowledgement that at happens all the time. Perhaps in the podcast linked therein.

wow - I was half joking about money laundering but there really is something very odd about a .99 romance novel with an asking price of $2,630.52....

Amazon’s Curious Case of the $2,630.52 Used Paperback
https://www.nytimes.com/2018/07/15/tech ... icing.html

“There’s nothing illegal about someone listing an item for sale at whatever the market will bear, even if they don’t have the book but plan to buy it when someone orders it,” she said. “At the same time, I would think Amazon wouldn’t want their platform used for less than honorable practices.”

They need to be able to get the relevant information out of Amazon or eBay or whatever was used to sell them.
