The Psychology of Money

by The Tim Ferriss Show


Money has a curious ability to wreak havoc on our thinking. We pursue it even though it won't fulfill us and have difficulty using it wisely. Morgan Housel, author of best-selling book The Psychology of Money and a partner at venture capital firm The Collaborative Fund, has spent his career writing about finance and how the counterintuitive laws of money can trip us up.

The Tim Ferriss Show interviews world-leading experts from diverse fields, uncovering the insights and resources that have influenced their success. In this March 2022 episode, Housel and Ferriss discuss how money confuses us, the power of compounding, and why it's OK to be irrational.
