#86: Benjamin Graham’s The Intelligent Investor Part 1


In the first episode of this two-part series, Scott and Karl begin discussing Benjamin Graham’s 1949 classic The Intelligent Investor.

Heralded as the greatest investment advisor of the twentieth century, Graham’s philosophy of “value investing” provides the core tenants of all good portfolio management.

Karl says, “It is [about] how to invest. But what it is not is how to speculate.”

Where the speculator follows market trends, the investor uses discipline, research, and analytical ability to purchase assets that will produce a predictable yield.

Tune in to learn more about and this hallmark investment guide and dig into what Scott calls Graham’s “metaphysics of corporatehood.”
