Jeremy Stein for Fed Governor (reprise)

Personally, I am a big fan of Stein's work. The shortest way to explain why is to list the titles of his five most cited papers:

  • Herd Behavior and Investment
  • A Unified Theory of Underreaction, Momentum Trading and Overreaction in Asset Markets
  • Rick Management: Coordinating Investment and Financing Policies
  • Bad News Travels Slowly: Size, Analyst Coverage and the Profitability of Momentum Strategies
  • Internal Capital Markets and the Competition for Corporate Resources.

Stein has spent his career trying to figure out how capital markets really work instead of pledging fealty to models that don't work very well.  I can't think of a better intellectual qualification for a Federal Reserve Board member.

The Herd behaviour and investing paper sounds interesting. I can guess what it is about and probably sums up human nature in this regard very well.

If he embraces Market Monetarism, then we have a win!

DAVE LINDAHL say that, if you want to get rich in no matter of time, then real estate investing would be the best way; inexorably when we think of real estate investing; we foresee a residential rental, either a unit or a house in fact, the real estate industry is much bigger than that. Nevertheless, there are several things that will help you to make money in this particular field.
