Investing – Six Things I Learned in Business School That Were Absolutely Wrong
I got my MBA at Kellogg nearly four decades ago and have been teaching investing for the last 20 years. Though not much has changed in the curriculum, over time I’ve realized that some things are downright wrong. Here are the big six.
Inequality, Interest Rates, Aging, and the Role of Central Banks
The key insight is that the ultra-rich are different from you and me: they have much higher saving rates regardless of their age. No matter how expensive your tastes, there’s a limit to how much you can consume, which means any income above that threshold has to get saved. The ultra-rich therefore spend relatively small shares of their income on goods and services that directly provide jobs and incomes to others, instead accumulating stocks, bonds, art, trophy real estate, and other assets.
The ultra-rich need no encouragement to refrain from buying goods and services, so any increase in income concentration should put downward pressure on interest rates. Another way to look at it is that an increase in income concentration boosts the demand for financial assets, which should push up prices and push down yields.
The modern curriculum
We’ve spent 130 years indoctrinating kids with the same structure. Now, as some of us enter a post-lockdown world, I’d like to propose a useful (though some might say radical) way to reimagine the curriculum.
How to Buy a Little Happiness, No Matter How Much Money You Have
Despite the toll financial instability places on our psyches, many of us have cosigned on the idea that what matters for happiness is intangible and unpurchasable, and as a culture, we can be quick to judge excessive wealth and flashy spending. But we also champion small business owners and entrepreneurs — the ones who’ve taken a risk and earned their money through hard work, perseverance, and prudence. As a result, we say we believe money won’t make us happy, yet we often work as if earning money and growing wealth is one of the most important routes to a life well lived. It’s a dissonance that’s driven, in part, by a stingy social safety net, one that requires Americans to make more and save more than those in other economically advanced nations — just to survive.
’Why Am I Not Rich & Famous?’ the Delusion of Our Times
Person A was born in 1930. Person B was born seventy years later, in 2000. They both start applying the Graham investing strategy at a very early age, let’s say when they were 15 years.
Person A becomes Warren Buffett, once the richest man on earth, who experienced one of the biggest booms in value stocks when he was young. Person B loses half of their money because value stocks are out of favor in the 2010s. And picking winning value stocks is almost impossible.
Same strategy, same actions, different times, different outcomes. Becoming rich and famous is mostly a matter of luck.
