The final word on passive vs. active investing The debate on active investing-stock picking and market timing-versus passive investing-markets are highly efficient and almost impossible to outperform-has raged for decades. Which side is right? In The Quest for Alpha: The Holy Grail of Investing, author Larry E. Swedroe puts an end to the debate, proving once and for all that active investing is likely to prove futile as the associated expenses-costs, fees, and time spent analyzing individual stocks and the overall market-are likely to exceed any benefits gained. The book Presents research, data, and quotations that reveal it's extremely difficult to outperform the market Explains why investors should focus on asset allocation, fund construction, costs, tax efficiency, and the building of a globally diversified portfolio that minimizes, if not eliminates, the taking of idiosyncratic, uncompensated risks Other titles by Swedroe: The Only Guide to Alternative Investments You'll Ever Need and The Only Guide You'll Ever Need for the Right Financial Plan Investors are on a never-ending search for a money manager who will deliver returns above the appropriate risk-adjusted benchmark, aka the "Holy Grail of Investing." The Quest for Alpha demonstrates that it's a loser's game-while it's possible to win, it's so unlikely that you shouldn't try.

"A provocative, witty, and meaningful book. Searching for Alpha is eminently readable. I highly recommend it!"-Dr. Martin Zweig, Zweig-DiMenna Associates "Searching for Alpha is right on the mark and essential reading for anyone who wants to go beyond stock-picking and think about how to construct a total portfolio to fit their own risk and return objectives."-Bluford H. Putnam, President, CDC Investment Management Corp. "Searching for Alpha is as instructional as it is entertaining. Ben Warwick's engaging examination of the modern investment process is succinct yet thorough, and cleverly interspersed with amusing facts, anecdotes, and historical insights . . . a charming book with lots of insight for both the novice and the professional."-Mark Kritzman, Managing Partner, Windham Capital Management, author, Puzzles of Finance "Searching for Alpha is a wild and entertaining read that just happens to be an investment book. Along the way, you'll read about the Civil War, the origin of professional football, and even whaling-and by the time you're through, you'll know more about the investment game than you ever imagined."-Jeremy Pink, Editor-in-Chief, "An erudite, well-written, and interesting book-with the added advantage of being right! The theory is state-of-the-art; the practice is very much current. Warwick has a special talent for historical analogy and storytelling."-Theodore R. Aronson, Partner, Aronson & Partners

Alpha still exists! But that doesn't mean it is easy to find, or even worth the pursuit. Larry Swedroe, author of the bestselling series of "The Only Guide" investment books, and co-author Andrew Berkin bring you the quantitatively chilling tale of "The Incredible Shrinking Alpha." As aficionados of classic science fiction, Swedroe and Berkin saw similarities between the monumental struggle of Scott Carey, novelist Richard Matheson's Incredible Shrinking Man, and that of every individual investor trying to beat the market. Swedroe and Berkin explain in academic yet simple terms what is happening to the alpha for which so many investors yearn. Offering compelling data from decades of academic research, Swedroe and Berkin present the hard truth as they know it - it's not worth the time or effort spent battling to win those few extra cake crumbs. Instead, focus on the things you can control and discover what life has to offer beyond the quest for alpha.

Praise for Active Alpha "Active alpha is the quest for every sophisticated investor. Thisbook covers all of the key alpha sources currently mined by activemanagers, reduces the complexity of the subject, and helps theinvestor get started in the right direction." -Mark Anson, Chief Executive Officer, Hermes Pensions ManagementLtd. "Long-held traditional methods for investing large portfolios aregiving way to new processes that are designed to improveproductivity and diversification. These changes find their locus inthe sometimes overly mysterious world of absolute returnstrategies. In this book, Alan Dorsey demystifies that new worldand provides a guiding pathway into the future of professionalportfolio management. This is an important read for any investorwho plans to succeed going forward." -Britt Harris, Chief Investment Officer, Teacher Retirement Systemof Texas "With great lucidity, Alan Dorsey's book, Active Alpha, fills animportant void by identifying the relevant institutional featuresof this complex subject and by providing a unifying analyticframework for understanding and constructing portfolios ofalternative assets. For anyone investing in the alternative class,from the new student to the experienced practitioner, Active Alphais a necessary read. I am recommending it to everyone I know withsuch an interest, and it is destined to become a much thumbedreference on my shelf." -Steve Ross, Franco Modigliani Professor of Financial Economics,Sloan School, MIT

In the autumn of 1990 there was a sense of change taking place in the world economy. Readiness for war was occurrin~ in the Middle East and a recession was already underway in a few major countries. The forces of reform and political re-shaping were visible in Eastern Europe and the Soviet Union. We economists, gathering in Osaka, Japan, under the auspices of the International Institute for Advanced Studies (Kyoto) could recognize that the Cold War was over and that politico-economic restructuring would take place among the powers in the Warsaw Treaty Organization. Much has happened since the latter part of 1990 to affect international economic stability. The events of that period were both positive and negative for economic stability, but our concern was weighted towards the negative side. Dur charge and sponsorship was scholarly, and the papers from the learned contributors to the symposium and this resulting volume used the many tools of economic analysis to try to understand the ongoing developments. In the intervening period, while this volume was being prepared and edited, we did not cnange our viewpoints in any fundamental way, and we can take satisfaction in the way our symposium either relates to the unfolding sequence of events in a substantive sense or provides a framework in which to study these events.
