The Equity Risk Premium: Essays and Explorations

BY William N. Goetzmann , Roger G. Ibbotson

Publisher: Oxford University Press, USA (September 29, 2006)



Review

"William Goetzmann and Roger Ibbotson have produced a searching and comprehensive analysis of how history reveals the forces that shape risk and return in the stock market. But HURRAH! their work is also eminently readable. All investors, economic historians, and financial academics should read this book--and hurry up about it."--Peter L. Bernstein, Publisher of Economics and Portfolio Strategy and Consulting Editor of The Journal of Portfolio Management

"Understanding the stock market is really about understanding the premium that investors demand for holding stocks over less risky assets. Not surprisingly, then, the 'equity premium puzzle' i.e., the seemingly inexplicably high historical excess returns on the stock market, has become a focus of extensive research and debate. To quote Goetzmann and Ibbotson, 'history matters,' and with the deceptively simple act of putting it together, they have shown us just how much it does and how much we can learn from the past. They have also staked their position firmly in the camp of those who believe that with careful statistical analysis of the historical record, and, in particular, with a clear understanding of the role of survivorship bias, the puzzle can be explained. Whatever prior views they may hold, both the professional and the interested amateur will learn much from this work."--Stephen A. Ross, Franco Modigliani Professor of Finance and Economics, MIT



Product Description

This book aims to create a strong understanding of the empirical basis for the equity risk premium. Through the research and anaylsis of two scholars who are experts in this field, this volume presents the key issues that are paramount to investors, including whether or not to use historical data as a method of equity investing, and can the equity premium reflect changes in fundamental values and cash flows of the market.
