Sometimes there are good reasons to set your own farm on fire. Sometimes it’s even good if your neighbours do it. Have you ever wondered how financial analysts are able to predict the future? Did you maybe even wonder if blindfolded monkeys could compete against them? We will tell you about the winner of this epic, ongoing battle in this episode.
Here some notes to the show:
- The forbes article, which Nils refers to when he is talking about blind-folded monkeys.
- A link to the great work of Stefan Leins: Stories of Capitalism: Inside the Role of Financial Analysts
- The quite sexist analysis of how fortune-telling was advertised in the late 19th century
And here is a little image of how Nils' Recording-Tipi™ looks like.
