A Conversation With Barry Ritholtz

You've probably seen Barry Ritholtz on TV or Twitter, or maybe you've read his blog, The Big Picture. He's one of my favorite financial writers, as funny as he is smart and as wise as he is controversial. 

Barry and I met up in New York last week to talk about markets, the economy, and investor psychology. Watch our talk in the following video:

    I wonder if part of the attraction of the hedge fund is two-fold:

    1) You believe that because you're in a small (thus implicitly "elite") group, then you will beat the market.

    2) You're willing to pay the price of entry and absurd costs, just like the high initiation and expensive dues to become a member of some fancy club: "Hey, I'm a 'qualified' (i.e. rich-enough) investor to join this club."

    I wonder if simply by being accepted in the club you've already gotten a "return on investment."

    Morgan: What is with the rash of videos and no transcripts? This seems to be an epidemic at MF. I realize some prefer videos, but others of us read much faster than the lame videos many MF "content providers"... I wont stoop to calling them writers.... produce.

    When some of you that write well (no I am not just buttering you up- I call you out on bad content) give in to this nonsense we are all the poorer for it- its quite ironic you know...
