MiB: ISI’s Ed Hyman, the Best Strategist You’ve Never Heard Of

This week, on our Masters in Business radio podcast, we speak with Evercore ISI’s Ed Hyman.

Hyman, an engineer by training, approaches economic data differently than many practitioners of the dismal science. In the 1960s, he was the first strategist to use a time-sharing computer to crunch economic data.  Hyman also created a series of wide-ranging private company surveys to provide a look at the economy in real time. To help his sales team understand complicated data, Hyman began annotating technical charts in plain English. He found clients liked the simplicity and focus as well.

For these and his many other innovations, Hyman has been voted Wall Street’s top economist by Institutional Investors for 35 consecutive years. The streak is unprecedented. Hyman may be the most influential strategist the public never heard of.

Listen to the full podcast on iTunesSoundCloud and on Bloomberg. Earlier podcasts can be found on iTunes and at BloombergView.com.

Be sure to check out our conversation next week with Leon Cooperman of Omega Advisors.

MiB: Pizzarelli Playlist

Last week, I recorded my MiB interview with Jazz Guitarist John Pizzarelli.

We ended up discussing so much music that I though it might be helpful to have a full list of the artists and songs to listen to you listen to it. I tried to create this list on Spotify, but Jazz apparently is not their greatest strength.

And my apologies to my mom, who on the fly I had graduating High School of Music & Art five years too early.
