Let the legends of finance be your money managers! Imagine having the opportunity to ask Babe Ruth how to hit, or Charles Lindbergh how to fly. Investment Titans assembles an unprecedented panel of Nobel laureates and great financial thinkers--including Harry Markowitz, Paul Samuelson, John Bogle, and others--to ask: "How can investors make smart decisions that minimize risk and uncertainty and maximize return?" Their answers are thought-provoking, innovative, and certain to provide profitable insights for readers to use in their own investing.

Each contributor's field of knowledge--hedging risk, defeating psychological negatives, picking stocks, choosing strategies--is featured in its own concise, hands-on chapter. The result is a rare, fascinating look inside the minds and techniques of some of today's greatest financial thinkers.

Strana 125 - The things which have the greatest value in use have frequently little or no value in exchange; and on the contrary, those which have the greatest value in exchange have frequently little or no value in use. Nothing is more useful than water: but it will purchase scarce anything; scarce anything can be had in exchange for it.
Strana 42 - The chance of gain is by every man more or less overvalued, and the chance of loss is by most men undervalued, and by scarce any man, who is in tolerable health and spirits, valued more than it is worth.
Strana 49 - If you don't know who you are, the stock market is an expensive place to find out.
Strana 49 - ... different individuals and families. There would then be no economic goods, ie, no goods that are relatively scarce; and there would hardly be any need for a study of economics or "economizing.

Strana 66 - Siegel has been a Professor of Finance at The Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania since 1976.
Strana 102 - The fox knows many things, but the hedgehog knows one great thing.
Strana 120 - You are neither right nor wrong because the crowd disagrees with you,
Strana 133 - It always seemed, and still seems, ridiculously simple to say that if one can acquire a diversified group of common stocks at a price less than the applicable net current assets alone — after deducting all prior claims, and counting as zero the fixed and other assets — the results should be quite satisfactory. They were so, in our experience, for more than thirty years.
