Somebody else made a “Tales from the Crypto” joke already I’m sure, but I thought of it now and I’m running with it damnit. With the FTX bankruptcy and crypto ponzi blowups making headlines all around us, I’ve been fascinated by just what happened, who got sucked in (and how), and how the world is … Continue reading Podcast Of The Week: Tales From The Crypto [FTX Podcast Collection]
This book made me feel like I was hearing Pusha-T reimagine Warren Buffett’s letters. If you need a late-summer beach read, or just love a good (re: insane) biography, don’t leave The Fish That Ate The Whale in your to-read list or audible queue for as long as I did. I tore through this book. … Continue reading I’ma I’ma (Fruit) Hustla
Terry O’Reilly’s Under The Influence podcast does a very interesting dive into “green” marketing. He looks at where it started, how it's changed, and gives some ideas for marketers in 2022 to stay relevant in a quickly shifting space. These are the stories that move markets, pay attention.
If you like business, if you’re interested in capitalism, incentives, and the overlap between public and private idea funding AND scaling… you’ll love this podcast episode and Jigar Shah. Listen to Jigar Shah on the Oddlots podcast, “Jigar Shah on the DOE’s Role In Accelerating The Energy Transition.” Change takes investment. Investment requires money. Money … Continue reading Podcast Of The Week: Jigar Shah On The DOE And Energy Policy In America
I may have to make a separate list of “oh, to have the privilege of being a fly on the wall for this conversation” podcast episodes. Ben Hunt is the market/political game-theorist extraordinaire. JP O’Shaugnnessy is one of the original quant investors. The talk is supposed to be centered on the metaverse, but they cover … Continue reading Podcast Of The Week: Ben Hunt With JP O’Shaughnessy
The world feels like its trying to end all around us sometimes. Once you’ve been through it a few times, once you’ve come to terms with hating how true “this too shall pass” is because it’s never passing fast enough, and once you’ve embraced how “things are always darkest before they go completely black,” you’re … Continue reading Fortunes Are Collected At Peaks And Created In Declines
I need some optimism. I also need a fresh perspective on reality. Louis-Vincent Gave is a great macro thinker, and being that he both lives outside of the US, and does global investing/research, he’s just the insightful conversation I was looking for. Gave appeared on the MacroVoices podcast a few weeks ago and talked about … Continue reading Podcast Of The Week: Gave On What Is Happening In Global Markets
Disclosure: to my non-financial markets friends, I offer you this insight first, and then for whoever else still cares, you’ll want to check out the podcast below. One interpretation of the decade (still mostly) in front of us is that it might be like The Roaring ‘20s all over again. Advances in technology, low unemployment, … Continue reading Podcast Of The Week: The Tangible ‘20s
This Brian Portnoy take really resonated with me. He says we (the finance industry) have created a “Behavioral Finance entertainment complex that does very little to help real people make real decisions.” In a nutshell, people are predictably irrational (as Dan Ariely put it). We know a lot of ways these irrationalities manifest. In the … Continue reading Podcast Of The Week: The Behavioral Finance Entertainment Complex
Your business has an age. Treat it accordingly. A baby needs 24/7 care, can’t do anything for themselves and is wholly unpredictable. It’s the idea on paper where you’re asking “maybe this will work” but any number at this stage is largely irrelevant. Toddlers require even more resources. Nothing of material value is coming out … Continue reading How Old (In Human Years) Is Your Business?
