What hasn’t the guy written? I mean, seriously…
What’s the big secret?
He’s starting a blog!
Alex’s mission (in his own words):
The goal of this blog is to make academic finance research accessible to a wide audience, in particular people with non-finance backgrounds who might not normally be interested in finance. This idea spun out of the “Extra-Curricular Topics” I teach in my MBA classes, a 10-minute interlude where I teach an academic paper with significant real-world relevance. In addition to academic research, I also aim to feature real-world events (e.g. the current economic outlook or an M+A deal).
