In Debunkery, Ken Fisher outlines some of the most common mistakes many (if not all) investors make and provides some guidelines on how to avoid them. From the false belief that bonds are safer than stocks to the equally false belief budget surpluses are good for stocks, Ken Fisher takes a good, hard look at data to debunk 50 investing myths and explains the flawed reasoning behind them.
As Ken Fisher explains, "Let me say this book is not about some 'how-to' system for beating the market. It doesn't have a market-beating formula or even specifically tell you how to invest. If you want a serious primer on overall investing strategy, I refer you to several of my other books. This one is about improving your odds and making fewer mistakes by deploying debunkery."
