The last week was light on news from the podcasting world, so Tadas Viskanta jumps right into his selections, with entries touching on high-frequency trading (HFT), crowdfunding's impact on real estate, and David Simon's journey from newspaper reporter to one of the most celebrated television writers and producers.
In this week's Essential Listening podcasts, Alex Dalmady talks about detecting financial fraud and Y-Combinator founder Paul Graham discusses the increasingly prominent role of start-up accelerators in the venture capital space.
Looking for something to listen to? Among others, this week features discussions of the global volatility premium, progress towards a humane restaurant industry, and how an Irish cattle farmer became a leading expert on the global economy.
A team of researchers set about investigating the role of volatility premiums in institutional investment portfolios. Their simulations showed that modest allocations to short volatility exposure have the potential to enhance long-term returns. One of the researchers, William Fallon, spoke with Pat Light about these new insights.
Among the podcasts in Tadas Viskanta's latest roundup, Michael Covel interviews Nobel Prize–winning economist Angus Deaton and Barry Ritholtz talks to Mohamed El-Erian about the state of the world economy.
