The Morgan Housel Podcast -- timeless lessons on wealth, greed, and happiness.

Episode Date
Everything You Can't Have

This episode covers a hard topic about money: What you want more than anything is everything you can't have.

Your brain doesn’t want stuff. It doesn’t even want new stuff. It wants to engage in the process and anticipation of getting new stuff. 

The change, not the amount, is what matters.

When it comes to happiness and money, it's not about how much you have. It's about the change in how much you have. 

Special cameo from Richard Nixon.

Getting Rich vs. Staying Rich

Getting rich and staying rich are two different skills. They are often conflicting skills, so many people focus on one or the other. 

But you need both to do well over time. 

This episode tells a 100-year-old story of two investors, neither of whom knew each other, but whose fates converged during the same week in the 1920s. 

It shows why a barbell personality of optimistic on one hand, and paranoid on the other, is vital to success.

Episode 2: A look at the lifestyles we all choose to live, with an old story I came across that might be my favorite example of living for the approval and applause of other people vs. doing things just because they make you happy.

The Art of Spending Money

The first episode -- who knows where this will go?

There is a science to spending money – how to find a bargain, how to make a budget, things like that.

But there’s also an art to spending. A part that can’t be quantified and varies person to person.

In my book I called money “the greatest show on earth” because of its ability to reveal things about people’s character and values. How people invest their money tends to be hidden from view. But how they spend is far more visible, so what it shows about who you are can be even more insightful.

Everyone’s different, which is part of what makes this topic fascinating. There are no black-and-white rules.

But here are a few things I’ve noticed about the art of spending money.
