In this episode I unravel the fabric of the 1970s—a decade of economic turmoil—and extract the golden threads of wisdom that are just as relevant to today’s investor. We’ll challenge the fallacy that “this time is different,” shining a light on the enduring power of human ingenuity and the resilience of the market. It’s a story that celebrates the remarkable ability of great companies to thrive amid uncertainty, and it’s a story that I can’t wait to share with you.

So, come along and let’s embrace the wisdom of history together—your financial peace of mind might just be a podcast episode away.
