Larry Siegel, CFA Institute Research Foundation director and author is my guest on "Bolgeheads on Investing" podcast

Post by Rick Ferri » Fri May 01, 2020 7:34 am

Laurence B. Siegel (Larry) is the director of research at the CFA Institute Research Foundation, former director of research at The Ford Foundation, former Ibbotson Associates, Inc. managing director, senior advisor to OCP Capital LLC, and an independent consultant, writer, and speaker specializing in investment management. He has won many awards for writing including the coveted Graham and Dodd Award to recognize excellence in research and financial writing in the Financial Analysts Journal.

We discuss Larry's new book, Fewer, Richer, Greener: Prospects for Humanity in an Age of Abundance. This important book for our time chronicles how the world has become a much better place and why optimism is abundantly justified today, even in this time of societal stress and economic uncertainty resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic.

Episode 021: Larry Siegel, host Rick Ferri


Enjoy!

Your host,

Did order the book, as it looks like a good read for those on the Forum interested in current macro-trends.

Appreciate your work on this series, Rick, thank you.

Global macro-trends is a good way to describe the subjects covered in the book.

Received Mr. Seigel's book over the weekend, and have only had a few hours to look through it.

However, it's impressive at first blush. It manages to combine a broad view of all the important global macro-trends today (population growth, global wealth trends, energy challenges, productivity growth, climate change, etc.) with short, in-depth treatments of various critical issues — all in a very readable, almost conversational style (along with nice charts!).

If Bogleheads are inclined to read one book this decade on global macro-trends, this would be a good one.

I listened to the podcast & its sounds like a great message that needs to get out to everyone. This is inline with other great thinkers in this area like Bill Bernstein, Warren Buffett (with his American Tailwind series in his last two annual reports) & John Bogle. Thanks for the interview Rich.
