Good News, Bad News and Walls of Worry
by Erik Knutzen
The MSCI All Country World Index is up some 250% since the financial crisis. But was there ever a cycle in which investors were more skeptical about the market’s upward momentum, where stock valuations had to climb so many “walls of worry”? The wall of worry is associated with a maturing cycle, when there is

Diary of a Real Estate Professor
by Yolande Barnes
What do we mean by #RethinkRealEstate? If you are wondering what your life is about and want to get rather philosophical about it all, there is nothing quite like acquiring a new job title –particularly when you have to make it up yourself.
