Stocks For The Long Run
Some people find the process of assembling data to be a deadly bore.
Others view it as a challenge. Jeremy Siegel has turned it into an art form.You can only admire the scope, lucidity, and sheer delight with which Professor Siegel serves up the evidence to support his case for investing in stocks for the long run.
But this book is far more than its title suggests. You will learn a lot of
economic theory along the way, garnished with a fascinating history of
both the capital markets and the U.S. economy. By using history to maxi- mum effect, Professor Siegel gives the numbers a life and meaning they would never enjoy in a less compelling setting. Moreover, he boldly does battle with all historical episodes that could contradict his thesis and emerges victorious—and this includes the crazy years of the 1990s.
