Review quote

William Goetzmann and Roger Ibbotson have produced a searching and comprehensive analysis of how history reveals the forces that shape risk and return in the stock market.

Bernstein, Publisher of Economics and Portfolio Strategy and Consulting Editor of The Journal of Portfolio Management *show more
