What Are Your Thoughts: The $47 Trillion Question

I was in NYC this week visiting the home office so Josh, Michael, and I recorded an episode of What Are Your Thoughts?

We discussed:

  • The crazy number of mutual funds available to investors worldwide.
  • How many S&P 500 index funds should there be?
  • The $91 million rabbit as a piece of “art.”
  • Are index funds distorting markets?
  • Why index funds will actually take in more money during the next bear market.
  • Is Giannis the more likable NBA player in the game?
  • Our grades on the final season and finale for Game of Thrones.
  • Do any great shows have a good series finale?
  • The Slack IPO.
  • Why I would back Stewart Butterfield (Slack) and Daniel Ek (Spotify) if I could invest in CEOs.
  • Why Instagram ads are better than Twitter ads.
  • Why doesn’t Twitter charge power users?

If you missed it, be sure to check out the video we did with Ramit Sethi of I Will Teach You To Be Rich fame this week as well. We had a lot of fun shooting these.

We’re going to be doing more of these videos so make sure you subscribe to our channel at The Compound.
