Product description


Robert Shiller, author of Irrational Exuberance
" A most provocative book. The real advantages of time diversification have never been laid out so clearly or with such a program of action."

Tim HarfordFinancial Times
"Here are the chief investment lessons of the financial crisis for today’s young people: they should be buying more shares and running up debts to do so. . . . [T]here is nothing intrinsically risky about regular borrowing to get that fund off to an early start. . . . Not only does the concept make sense, it has paid off in the past. . . . Ayres and Nalebuff have looked at historical stock market data. . . . For every single cohort, the early leverage strategy beat the conventional wisdom."

Moshe A. Milevsky, Ph.D., Finance Professor, York University, and author ofAre You a Stock or a Bond?
“This bold book promotes more early equity exposure for the masses, precisely at a time when many practitioners are re-thinking the ‘buy and hold stocks for the long run’ mantra. Whether you are comfortable with this strategy or not, the book is a must read for anyone who claims to think about their personal finances in a rigorous and logical manner.”
