LIVE interview with Bill Bernstein, author of "The Delusions of Crowds: Why People Go Mad in Groups"

Post by Bogle Center »

Hello Bogleheads!

The John C. Bogle Center for Financial Literacy is excited to announce the next installment of the Bogleheads Speaker Series!

Saturday, April 10, 2021, 1 p.m. eastern time: Bill Bernstein in conversation with Bob Pisani (register)

Please register to see Dr. Bill Bernstein talk about the markets, investing, and his new book, The Delusions of Crowds: Why People Go Mad in Groups, with CNBC senior markets correspondent Bob Pisani. We’re thrilled to partner with Spark Network to use a new platform for this event. And we’re introducing a new feature—you’ll have the opportunity to connect for additional discussion in video rooms after the conversation.

The Bogleheads Speaker Series is provided free of charge. Please consider a tax-deductible contribution to the Bogle Center to help offset our costs and continue with this and other educational programs.

The event will be recorded and posted to the Bogle Center’s website. Stay tuned for announcements of future speakers.

I thought discussion of this book was prohibited here.

The book focuses on religious and political issues which are outside the scope of this forum.

We have already removed one comment and one video link which delved into these areas. Based on past experience, comments of a similar focus will continue and result in highly contentious discussions. We are keeping the thread locked for this reason.
Has that changed?

For myself, I own and I only refer to all of John Bogle's books.

I do not need any other investment related books.

I will not be looking for investment advice, I am interested in crowds and how the become infected with ideas that seem crazy to me. I expect the interview to be very interesting.

For some reason, this wasn't listed on the main BH "Calendar of Events", so I just added it (along with the registration link).

BTW, I suggest folks bookmark the Calendar (https://www.bogleheads.org/blog/calendar-of-events/), or better yet, use the link blbarnitz posted there to add it to your personal calendar.

Suggested my local library add the book, and they've said they've ordered it. It's on hold for me when it arrives.
