Other People’s Mistakes
When judging others’ poor behaviour it’s easy to underestimate your own susceptibility to the power of incentives. It’s hard to tell the difference between boldness and recklessness, greed and ambition, contrarian and wrong. Not all relevant information is visible.
DCF in spirit, not letter
Unlike in textbooks, real-world methods are about practicality and efficacy. Soundness of decisions matter, not elegance of method. An empirically-grounded, conservative, multiple-based approach has worked well over the years.
Updating The Spock Market
Most Investors do not know they don’t know: Listen to any explanation of market behaviour; they are usually filled with hindsight bias and rationalizations. It is rare to hear someone asked a question about market behaviour and not give a detailed after the fact narrative. Few are willing to says “I don’t know” or “Its essentially random.”
Advertising Stagflation – Its the 1970s for digital marketers
Everyone seems to be talking about inflation, but I’m still having a lot of trouble imagining what non-transitory inflation looks and feels like in real life. As an econ undergrad, sure, I get the technical definitions and feedback loops. As someone who worked in emerging market finance, I’ve certainly watched other countries experience inflation through a terminal screen. As someone who reads plenty of economic history, I have clear hyperinflationary mental images of wheelbarrows of money. As a parent living in an expensive urban area, I’m well acquainted with the cost pressures of education, health care, and housing which create endless stress but don’t really count.
Extracting Value vs Creating Value
How well am I serving my customers? Am I a good team player? Do I make projects move faster or slower? Of course, value is not directly correlated with money. Money’s just the easiest way to measure it. Some extremely valuable things make no money. On the other hand, there are extremely high-paid jobs which are bullshit jobs. You probably know who and what I’m talking about.
Creating Value in a COVID World: How do you find balance between all this? You don’t want to be a parasite, constantly taking and never giving. On the other hand, it’s heroic to give and never take — a martyr — but I imagine it’s not very comfortable. Surely there’s a balance where you take enough for yourself, and still be a good contributor to society.
