Same as Ever
When planning for the future we often ask, “What will the economy be doing this time next year?” Or, “What will be different ten years from now?”
But forecasting is hard. The important events that will shape the future are inherently unpredictable.
Instead, we should be asking a different question:
What will be the same ten years from now?
What will be the same one hundred years from now?
Knowledge of the things that never change is more useful, and more important, than an uncertain prediction of an unknowable future.
In Same As Ever, bestselling author Morgan Housel shares 24 short stories about the ways that life, behaviour, and business will always be the same.
Armed with this knowledge of the unchanging, you will have a powerful new ability to think about risk, opportunity, and how to navigate the uncertainty of the future.
The Psychology of Money
Doing well with money isn't necessarily about what you know. It's about how you behave. And behavior is hard to teach, even to really smart people.
Money investing, personal finance, and business decisions is typically taught as a math-based field, where data and formulas tell us exactly what to do. But in the real world people don't make financial decisions on a spreadsheet. They make them at the dinner table, or in a meeting room, where personal history, your own unique view of the world, ego, pride, marketing, and odd incentives are scrambled together.
In The Psychology of Money, award-winning author Morgan Housel shares 19 short stories exploring the strange ways people think about money and teaches you how to make better sense of one of life's most important topics.
