Prepare to take a deep dive into the intriguing world of finance with our esteemed guest, John Cochrane, fondly known as the Grumpy Economist. This episode promises to shed light on the complex aspects of market efficiency, survivorship bias, and the intricacies of performance evaluation. We explore the impact of market cycles on active managers and emphasize the need for a disciplined approach towards financial allocation strategies.  Let"s decode the relationship between interest rates and inflation, examining its evolution over time. We also scrutinize the critical role of expectations and the trust we place in government institutions when it comes to inflation dynamics. But that"s not all. We delve into the mysterious world of the American mortgage system, discussing the challenging "mortgage puzzle" and its implications on the U.S. economy. You"ll also hear our thoughts on the influence of social media on market efficiency and consumer behavior.  In the latter part of our discussion, Cochrane and I express concern about the government"s escalating debt and its potential consequences for the average taxpayer. Will the debt bubble finally burst, or will it continue to inflate? More importantly, what does this mean for you? We conclude on a futuristic note and ponder the potential role of artificial intelligence in academia and investing. Do competitive markets shape the success of educational institutions? Cochrane weighs in on this, sharing his thoughts on the changing value of higher education.
