Practicing evidence-based medicine is important to physicians, looking at data and changing our practice according to it. Our guest in this episode, Larry Swedroe, has been a proponent of evidence-based investing for a long-time. His teachings have affected me over the years and certainly affected my portfolio construction. In this interview we talk about the limited data set in finance in comparison to other more scientific fields and how much we can rely on that retrospective data going forward. We discuss portfolio construction, alternative asset classes, recommended strategies for spending down assets in retirement, and investment mistakes smart investors make. Are you a smart investor?
