A good story in the New York Times (free site, subscription may be required) about a rabbi who's written a book about investing.

http://www.nytimes.com/2003/12/07/business/yourmoney/07lunc.html

An excerpt from the story:

Forgive yourself. Lots of people got sucked in by greed. Rabbi Blech even remembers one of his son's friends, an otherwise bright and seemingly responsible young man, whose plan was to quit his job, cash in his stocks and become a full-time ski bum. "Small wonder that God saw fit to send an economic flood,' Rabbi Blech said.

-Steve
