Authors@Google: Burton Malkiel - Timeless Lessons for Investors

One of the giants in the area of personal finance and investing. Professor Malkiel is the author of the classic investment book, A Random Walk Down Wall Street. He has also authored several other books, including the recently published The Elements of Investing.


  1. I look forward to watching this. Read "The Elements....". Interesting part was that both Malkiel and Ellis use part of their investable assets to "play the market". They recognize that it is fun to try to beat the market!

  2. I don't know if you've had a chance to watch the entire video yet, but near the end he does talk about setting aside a bit of money to try to beat the market.
