SSRN, the #1 research repository in the world, recently released their top research papers of 2016 and I was lucky enough to have TWO papers on the list. The first, of course, is my older paper “Understanding the Modern Monetary System” and the second is the paper I published in March of 2016 titled “Understanding Modern Portfolio Construction”. If you’ve already read those then have a look at a few of the others on the list. Jackson’s Game Theory paper is tremendous and Meb Faber’s Tactical Asset Allocation is equally fantastic. If you feel the need to get a little nerdier then dive into the Damodaran papers. The guy is a total genius and is overly generous spreading his knowledge.
2. A Quantitative Approach to Tactical Asset Allocation by Meb Faber (Cambria Investment Management)
3. Explaining Nationalist Political Views: The Case of Donald Trump by Jonathan Rothwell (Gallup) and Pablo Diego-Rosell (Gallup)
