Bull!

I caught Maggie Mahar on K&C last nite (never heard of her before). She was discussing her new book: Bull: A History of the Boom, 1982-1999: What drove the Breakneck Market–and What Every Investor Needs to Know About Financial Cycles [1].

Her thesis is right up my alley — its a fascinating study of longer term bull and bear cyles. Her concepts are very similar to the study “Looking at the Very Very Long Term [2]” we did earlier this Fall.

Good stuff; I haven’t read Mahar’s book yet, but from what I skimmed of it, its looks like a keeper . . .
