According to Huey, a CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER and Chartered Advisor in Philanthropy®, who also holds of Master of Business Administration and Bachelor of Arts in History, "The smartest money move you can make right now is to turn back time. In this world of instant information, formula trading, and brilliant mathematicians running multi-billion-dollar hedge funds, stories of the past provide us with powerful perspective. You don't have to be brilliant or even good at math to be a successful investor. But you do need to know a few fundamentals about how markets and economies work and recognize that our brains are old technology not necessarily built for the task. Stories help illustrate these concepts in a way math never could."
