How to Read Financial News and Set Aside our Biases

  1. Robert J. Martorana, CFA

Robert Martorana, CFA, is the author of a popular series of blog posts on how to read financial news. In this episode, he explains why now, more than ever, we need to read the news with a clear eye about our emotions and biases, especially our tendency towards confirmation bias and political bias, and shares a framework to help us maintain our objectivity when reading the news during times of crisis—and beyond.

The Take 15 Series is a collection of illuminating, short conversations with noted economists, best-selling authors, leading researchers, and successful practitioners on topics ranging from geopolitics and whistleblowing to irrationality and outlooks.
