WCI #207: The Delusions of Crowds with Bill Bernstein

Update: 2021-04-22


Bill Bernstein is one of the smartest people we know in the investing world. Listen to this interview with Dr. Bernstein about his new book, The Delusions of Crowds and you will see why. The book is about religion and finance and is Bill’s attempt to explain to a secular audience the current polarization of American politics and culture. We really like his focus on financial history. It is important to understand what has happened in the past and to carry those lessons into your current investing. We discuss past manias, mass delusions, and bubbles while comparing them to today’s world. Bill emphasized that we need to treat investing as a serious subject with fundamental textbooks and peer reviewed literature. See full show notes here
