The Great Inflation in the 1960s and 1970s, notes award-winning columnist Robert J. Samuelson, played a crucial role in transforming American politics, economy, and everyday life. The direct consequences included stagnation in living standards, a growing belief—both in America and abroad—that the great-power status of the United States was ending, and Ronald Reagan’s election to the presidency in 1980. But that is only half the story. The end of high inflation led to two decades of almost uninterrupted economic growth, rising stock prices and ever-increasing home values. Paradoxically, this prolonged prosperity triggered the economic and financial collapse of 2008 and 2009 by making Americans—from bank executives to ordinary homeowners—overconfident, complacent, and careless.  The Great Inflation and its Aftermath , Samuelson contends, demonstrated that we have not yet escaped the boom-and-bust cycles common in the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. This is a sobering tale essential for anyone who wants to understand today’s world.

  The book begins with a critical exploration of how to analyze investing properly by calculating and working the return on investment. Filled with exhibits, illustrative examples, and concise explanations, The Conceptual Foundations of Investing goes on to explore topics such as inflation, analysis and valuation, transaction costs, alternative investments, and much more. While the authors avoid the complex mathematics involved that characterizes much of modern finance, the text does contain useful investment data in spreadsheets and some equations and mathematical concepts. For the non-mathematically inclined, the authors provide valuable explanations. With a basic understanding of the foundations of investing, investors can avoid costly mistakes. One example of a typical investment error is the trade-off between risk and return. The trade-off seems to imply that if you bear more risk you will have higher long-run average returns. That conclusion is false. It is possible to bear a great deal of risk and get no benefit in terms of higher average return. The Conceptual Foundations of Investing is a resource written for individual and professional investors who want to add active elements to their portfolio. From the Back Cover Praise for THE CONCEPTUAL FOUNDATIONS OF INVESTING "There are very few people in finance who can span the divide between academia and practice, but Brad Cornell is an exception. This book is a perfect illustration of how you can answer every day investing questions with tools from finance, economics and statistics, and I strongly recommend that anyone interested in markets read it." — Aswath Damodaran, Kerschner Professor of Finance, Stern School of Business, NYU "Brad is one of the most insightful financial thinkers and investors in our industry. His publications and investment results put him in the most rarified peer group and make this book a must-read." — Jason Hsu, Chairman and CIO, Rayliant Global Advisors, Co-founder, Research Affiliates "A tour de force! Brad Cornell has made much of modern quantitative finance – in theory and practice – accessible to any intelligent investor. This should be the text for coursework on introductory finance." — Rob Arnott, Chairman, Research Affiliates A STRAIGHTFORWARD GUIDE TO THE FUNDAMENTAL CONCEPTS OF INVESTING, WITH A FOCUS ON ACTIVE INVESTING "In the years following the development of the capital asset pricing model in 1964, research in finance has revolutionized the understanding of financial markets. The problem is that much of the research that produced that revolution is highly technical and mathematical, making it difficult for investors who are not experts to grasp the conceptual foundations on which the modern understanding of investing is based. This book is designed to fill that gap. Its goal is to provide an understanding of the conceptual foundations of modern investment theory with a minimum of technical detail ."

Bogle's approach to mutual fund investing offers an effective method for developing a broadly diversified investment program. Step by step, he shows how to develop a long-term and strategic investing approach that balances the myriad market risks and shows how to manage the bumps along the volatile road of the marketplace. With Bogle on your side, you can learn how to spot excessive fees, reduce taxes, steer clear of overblown advertising claims, and ultimately create a portfolio that will meet your own financial objectives. Bogle on Mutual Funds gives investors the keys to adopting an effective asset allocation strategy, selecting appropriate mutual funds, and employing the savvy use of index funds. Fundamental to the Bogle approach is an understanding of the role of the many costs of investing, including advisory fees, operating expenses, and sales charges. Return, risk, and cost are the three legs of Bogle's eternal triangle of investing. John Bogle has built his acclaimed mutual fund company on the fundamental principles of candor, fairness, and low cost. Bogle on Mutual Funds: New Perspectives for the Intelligent Investor , his first book, has become a classic. The framework it presents for creating an investment portfolio is well grounded in Bogle's fact-founded wisdom and guiding principles, proven over and over again during the near-quarter-century since its first publication in 1993.

Start–to–finish guidance toward building and implementing a robust DC plan Successful Defined Contribution Investment Design offers a comprehensive guidebook for fiduciaries tasked with structuring and implementing a 401(k) or other defined contribution (DC) pension plan. More than a collection of the usual piecemeal information, this book seeks to offer a complete, contemporary framework for plan design, together with tested methodologies and analytic techniques to help streamline plan monitoring, management and improve participant outcomes. Examples from plan sponsors provide on–the–ground insight while suggestions from DC consultants add expert perspective. Views from ERISA expert counsel provide additional understanding along with input from academic thought leaders. Finally, investment evaluation and analysis is joined with participant savings and asset allocation data to look prospectively at potential outcomes, and case studies illustrate real–world implementation of objective–aligned asset allocation such as custom target–date strategies. Though the focus is primarily on U.S. plan design, author perspectives from countries including Australia, the United Kingdom and Canada provide relevant and helpful viewpoints for both new and experienced plan fiduciaries. For the vast majority of workers, DC plans have replaced traditional defined benefit pension plans as the primary source of employer–provided retirement income. This book provides comprehensive guidance to help you construct a plan to help workers to retire with confidence. Adopt a framework for DC evaluation and structure Learn new methodologies for investment choice evaluation Use the innovative PIMCO Retirement Income Cost Estimate or PRICE to help quantify the amount of money a worker needs to create and stay on track to building a real income stream in retirement Examine methodologies used at major companies in the U.S. and globally DC plans are the most rapidly growing retirement market in the world, yet sources of consolidated structural and analytical guidance are lacking. Successful Defined Contribution Investment Design fills the gap with a comprehensive handbook that covers the bases to help you develop an objective–aligned defined contribution plan.
