Ken Winans on "What They Don’t Teach at Harvard: History as an Investment Tool"
Thursday, November 16, 2017 12:30 PM to 1:30 PM

We have all heard the phrase “history repeats itself.” Yet, very few people apply long-term history to the art and science of investing. There is no better example of this than how the majority of modern investors, the most knowledgeable and technologically advanced in history, mishandled the 50% stock market corrections during the dotcom bust and the Great Recession. Learn about time-tested investment tools from Ken Winans' award-winning financial history book, Investment Atlas II, and how to improve investment performance and reduce losses in future bull and bear markets.

Diana Henriques on "A First-Class Catastrophe: The Road to Black Monday, the Worst Day in Wall Street History"
Tuesday, February 13, 2018 12:30 PM to 1:30 PM

For decades, “Black Monday” has meant October 19, 1987. Despite the many difficult days since then—the 1998 currency panic, the 2001 terrorist attacks, the 2008 crisis—Black Monday still stands as the worst day in American stock market history. But Wall Street has been quick to forget the urgent lessons revealed by the road to Black Monday—lessons even more relevant in the global computerized markets of today. In A First-Class Catastrophe, award-winning journalist Diana Henriques brings those harrowing days to life and excavates their overlooked but still relevant warnings for future generations.
