The Well-Read Investor

Episode 1: Meir Statman

We open with a bang in our first episode, a wide-ranging discussion with Professor Meir Statman. Meir is one of the true originals of behavioral finance—really a legend in the field. This discussion though, broadens across Meir’s career, with particular emphasis on his popular book, “Finance for Normal People”—an accessible yet jam packed work covering a career’s worth of findings in behavioral finance and economics.

For my part, the value of Meir’s work has always been in the humanity he brings to finance, you can hear it in his voice alone—and it’s part of what made this interview such a joy to do. Ultimately, the exploration of your own self and the psychology of others, is well worth the time in the quest to be a better person and better investor.
