Animal Spirits: A Random Talk

On today’s Animal Spirits, Ben and I spoke with Burton Malkiel, author of A Random Walk Down Wall Street, and Chief Investment Officer at WealthFront.

The professor is in his ninth decade, and he’s still as sharp as a tack. In this conversation we cover:

  • What has changed since the book was first published in 1973
  • Malkiel’s relationship with Jack Bogle
  • The difference between efficient markets and perfect prices, and much more

This was truly an honor. I hope you enjoy this as much as we did.
