    Quiet Compounding

And it does so silently, where growth is almost never visible right now but staggering over long periods of time.It’s quiet compounding, and it’s a wonder to see.I like the idea of quietly compounding your money. Just like in nature, it’s where you’ll find the most impressive results.

    History's Seductive Beliefs

    History's Seductive Beliefs

    My deepest forecasting belief is that you can better understand the future if you focus on the behaviors that never change instead of the events that might.And those behaviors have a common denominator: They follow the path of least resistance of people trying to simplify a complex world into a few stories that make sense and make them feel good about themselves.Simple stories, feel-good stories. Those are some of history’s most seductive beliefs, and they always will be.Here are a few that s...

My favourite new podcast

Housel is wise beyond his years and his insights are very practical.

Practical Finance!!!

I am a professional investor and I am delighted to hear sound insights about behavioural finance and investing, ie: investing is a marathon not a sprint, your behaviour and biases when investing matters tremendously, there is merit to making decisions that may not make sense in a financial model, ie: paying off your mortgage early, but they give you peace of mind, and that is incredibly hard to quantify on a spreadsheet, etc.

If you want to learn more about how to become a better long term investor this is absolutely worth a listen - and then a repeat.

A must listen!

Morgan is one of the most intelligent people I’ve heard speak. The amount of knowledge that he can pack into short episodes is amazing. All episodes are very thought provoking and packed full of brilliant quotes. Recommend this podcast to everyone I know, the short episodes definitely make it easy to listen to every episode! Thanks Morgan, please keep the episodes coming!
