February 26, 2021 pwm1

Every time I listen to a “brilliant economist” on the business networks, I try and remember that most of them hold views highly tainted by their particular economic school of thought—and the theories emanating from these schools are often worlds apart. Listen with a critical ear, and make it a mental habit to consider the opposing points of view. This will benefit you greatly in both the investment world and life in general.

—Mike Hazell
