Investing in U.S. Financial History: Understanding the Past to Forecast the Future

When:  May 8, 2024 from 12:00 PM to 01:00 PM (PT)
Associated with  CFA Society Seattle

Investors who neglect to study the past are forced to rely primarily on their life experience to make decisions. This often causes them to overlook powerful, cyclical forces that repeatedly reshape economies and markets. Mark Higgin’s book, Investing in U.S. Financial History, fills this void by recounting the full financial history of the United States. It begins with Alexander Hamilton’s brilliant financial programs in 1790 and ends with the Federal Reserve’s battle to contain inflation in 2023.

Higgins will provide an overview of several important lessons from financial history. The event will provide attendees with a glimpse of how a deep understanding of financial history can improve investment decision-making. Those who read the book in advance may gain more insight from the event. The format will consist of an approximately 30 minute discussion and 30 minutes of Q&A.
