Astrophysics or Finance (Ritholtz & Arnott)

admin on 2014/08/12

I ran across Barry Ritholtz’ new podcast series. I had been an avid follower of his blog last year. The content is top, but I can’t keep up with the sheer volume he puts out.

The new “Masters in Business Podcast” he’s doing on Bloomberg continues in top quality and quantity is more manageable. He interviews “celebrities” from the world of finance without time limit about their early career, their current views, etc. Highly interesting so far and finally something that goes beyond “Where do you think the S&P 500 will be next year?”

Ok, enough praise. Put this in your favorite podcast app (paid Beyondpod on Android for me) and follow it! You won’t regret it.

Now, before we get to the funniest piece I got on a podcast this year (or longer?), some background information. Barry Ritholtz is interviewing Rob Arnott who invented fundamental indexing and successfully runs it through Research Affiliates. Now listen to what he has to say about his career choice. Some of you might be able to relate.
