Daniel Kahneman: Something Interesting Happened In The Market Today


Daniel Kahneman: Something Interesting Happened In The Market Today

Today, we discuss the life of Daniel Kahneman, a pioneer in behavioral economics who challenged conventional economic thinking. His work reshaped how we view decision-making and market behavior. We also discuss investment strategies, touching on the idea of comparing assets using technical analysis to gauge opportunity costs. Understanding trends before diving into investments is key, as it helps investors make more informed decisions. Join us for another though provoking conversation as we discuss:

  • Daniel Kahneman, father of behavioral economics, passed away at 90
  • How Kahneman's work challenged traditional economic assumptions about rationality and market efficiency
  • Kahneman's experiments highlighted cognitive biases in decision-making
  • Reflecting on Kahneman's legacy, how investors are encouraged to explore his work and its implications for decision-making
  • Technical analysis and emphasizing the importance of comparing assets to identify investment opportunities
  • The example of Apple's performance relative to the S&P 500 illustrates the concept of opportunity cost in investing
  • Using natural gas as an example of applying both technical and fundamental analysis to investment decisions

Today's Guest:  Kirk Chisholm

Kirk Chisholm is a Wealth Manager and Principal at Innovative Advisory Group, an independent Registered Investment Advisor located in Lexington, MA. He has been providing wealth management services to individuals, executives, entrepreneurs, and their families since 1999. He is an outside the box thinker, risk manager, inflation expert, blogger, podcaster, and all-around interesting guy. Kirk is dedicated to developing lasting relationships with all of his clients and their families. One of the benefits of working with Kirk is his patience, empathy, and his ability to provide clear and easy-to-understand explanations to complex financial topics.

Kirk developed a unique philosophy for the wealth management industry called Risk Management First. The medical field has a similar way of thinking of “first do no harm”. This philosophy focuses on risk management for clients in all aspects of their lives in ways the industry does not address. Risk management does not stop with investments. It also requires working closely with other professionals to address areas of their financial lives not currently being met.

In 2008, Kirk co-founded Innovative Advisory Group to address the needs not being addressed by the wealth management industry. It started with specializing in alternative assets held in retirement accounts (i.e. self directed IRAs/401ks). Then the company expanded into the specialization of college funding (i.e. planning, strategy, and paying the least possible for a high quality education), Risk Management First, exit planning for business owners, advanced planning (estate, tax, etc), and providing practice management and leadership training to other financial advisors, accountants and attorneys.
