Meir Statman

Do investors really know what they want?

Well known among those in the CFA Institute and CFA society circles, the highly regarded behavioral scientist shares his thoughts and insights from his most recent book, "What Investors Really Want". Benefits (utilitarian, expressive, and emotional), cognitive errors, human nature, and rational investing are touched on in this most interesting and informative interview. Who knows, by exploring the mind of the market you may find yourself looking in the mirror.

Bethany McLean

In The Tempest the Bard wrote, "Hell is empty, and all the devils are here." He could have easily been describing the financial crisis, its causes, and its aftermath.

My interview with the coauthor of "All The Devils Are Here: The Hidden History of the Financial Crisis" takes us deep into the details of what went wrong and why. The depth of the investigative work is truly remarkable and, when understood in conjunction with my September 16th podcast interview with Simon Johnson, helps complete the picture of what happened, why it happened, and how to anticipate future such crisis.

Michael Phillips

My interview with the former CEO and Chairman of Russell Investments, current Chairman of the Russell 20-20 Association, and Chairman of Altaira Wealth Management, enabled me to tap into his decades of investment experience and insights to explore important economic and market issues including: a global macro economic overview, the recently adopted financial regulations, and the structure of today's financial markets with its prospective impact of producing a lost generation of investors.

Note; Due to recording factors, there is a slight volume variance between the interviewer (that would be me) and the interviewee (that's Michael) as well as an occasional warble in the interview. This does not take away from the quality of the content but can impair the quality of the listening experience. My apologies to Michael and to all listeners.
