SEGMENT 1: What Investors Really Want
Smart investing and playing the royal game of chess may at first sound like two different things. Yet the skills of lateral thinking, forward planning, and being able to keep an eye on the big picture are what make both a successful investor and a skilled chess player. But how do we learn these skills, or are they inborn?
In this week's Goldstein on Gelt Show, host Doug Goldstein speaks to Professor Meir Statman of Santa Clara University in California and Tilburg University in the Netherlands about investor behavior and his best seller, What Investors Want. In this interesting interview, we find out what motivates how we invest and how we can stick to our financial goals.
SEGMENT 2 - The Immortal Game A History of Chess
In the second half of the show, Doug speaks to David Shenk, author of several important works, including The Forgetting, Data Smog, The Genius in All of Us, and The Immortal Game. Discover whether our intelligence is hereditary and how we can apply lateral thinking and the rules of chess, even if we are not players ourselves, to our investment decisions by tuning into this week's show.
