In episode 324, we welcome our guest, Dr. Edward McQuarrie, Professor Emeritus at Santa Clara University. 
 
In today’s episode, we hear why the ‘stocks for the long-run’ thesis may not be so true. Dr. McQuarrie found digital archives and older data that gives a different conclusion than what Professor Jeremy Siegel found. We walk through how stock and bond returns have changed over time and learn that bonds have outperformed stocks for decades in countries like France and Japan.  We hear about Dr. McQuarrie’s ‘regime thesis,’ which says the risk/return profile of both stocks and bonds depends on what regime we’re in, both capable of outperforming or underperforming over any time horizon. 
 
Please enjoy this episode with Santa Clara University’s Edward McQuarrie.
