Excellent introduction to Behavioral Finance

Well done all. It was great to hear Meir Statman discussing an area that he helped pioneer.

Excellent podcast

I’ve always been impressed at what I’ve read/heard regarding Fisher Investments viewpoints. I will going forward refer to their services more as “well being managers”.
I look forward to the next in this series. Nice work!
