Larry Siegel is the Gary P. Brinson Director of Research at the CFA Institute Research Foundation and an independent consultant, writer, and speaker. He has written, co-authored, or edited a large number of journal articles, magazine articles, and CFA Institute Research Foundation monographs, and his book, Fewer, Richer, Greener: Prospects for Humanity in an Age of Abundance, reached #1 in Economics and #1 in History on Amazon shortly after its release.

In this episode, Larry shares his take on abundance from a fact-based perspective and debunks some common notions about the direction in which the world is headed. Listen in to hear why he says we have every reason to be optimistic about the future—despite the doomsday stories that so often make up the news cycles—and why the coronavirus pandemic has exposed society’s fault lines the way it has. If you’re in need of a bit of optimism in your life, this is an episode you don't want to miss!
