Mark Spitznagel Teaches the Economists How to Invest
Bob reviews Mark Spitznagel's latest book, "Safe Haven: Investing for Financial Storms," on which he was a consultant. Bob explains that Spitznagel rejects the alleged dichotomy between risk and return, and then gives a numerical example to illustrate the two schools of thought.
Bob is the most wholesome, kind, reasonable, and sensible radical you can find. If a curious economist who believes in smart fiscal policies from an Austrian economics viewpoint and uses his platform for honest discussion and information on a wide range of topics, sounds like the kind of fringe radical ideology that appeals to you, give it a listen.
Mr. Murphy goes the extra mile to ensure that even a person with little interest in economics can understand the material. If you’re well versed this will seem excessive but I enjoy his approach and find him very entertaining. The most interesting thing about the Bob Murphy Show is that he covers a diverse range of topics from the point of view of a curious economist.
Bob Murphy does a great job explaining complicated concepts, and making it always interesting. Love some of his shows covering intelligent design also.
