Better than a MBA/CFA–A PhD in Financial History by James Grant

A Fantastic Offer

From: CSInvesting: I have no affiliation with Grants Publication whatsoever, but I am a fan of his work.   I post this because if you want access to an incredible library of the past 35 years of financial history, then this is your chance.  If you pay $349, ignoring the book and the six future issues, you have access to two issues per month from the past 35 years or about 840 issues at 42 cents per issue.   Besides financial data, there are excellent case studies of valuation and financial euphoria/despair.

If you read through those issues (Of course, skimming over articles that don’t interest you.), then you would have the equivalent of an MBA/CFA/PhD in financial history plus a vast course in valuation on certain companies, bonds, and real estate in real-time over more than a third of a century.   THIS IS A DEAL!    See the offer below

Grant’s versus…
Dear Almost Daily Grant’s reader,

The new edition of Grant’s Interest Rate Observer features a hard look at a zooming stock. The company behind the stock is widely appraised as one of the century’s greatest. Grant’s begs to disagree with that consensus view, as is our wont. Who or what might bring this shooting star down to earth?

Subscribers are also reading about. . .

–the newly crowned holder of the dubious title of America’s most indebted nonfinancial corporation. Would you buy these bonds? Your insurance company probably is.

–one of the few North American industries where value–and bearishness–abounds.

–a pair of struggling foreign debt collectors who may soon be getting a taste of their own bitter corporate medicine.

–a certain Asian behemoth which has managed to spawn a money supply nearly as large as that of America and the eurozone combined.

All this, plus an inspiring Fourth of July quotation by Thomas Jefferson, awaits you.

Sign up today for a trial subscription: six issues, access to the 35-year Grant’s archive and a signed copy of Jim Grant’s latest book, “The Forgotten Depression: 1921, The Crash That Cured Itself,” winner of the 2015 Hayek Prize, all for just $349 ($359 outside U.S. and Canada).

  1. Better than a Columbia Value Investing Course–if you have the discipline to read through and think about the articles.

    • Could you elaborate on how it’s better than Columbia VI course and what as a reader we should focus on when reading it.

      • You probably need to read the letters with several chart books and access to a newspaper archive. I would skim and focus first on his comments on the under and over valuation of companies–then try to get the financial statements to see what he saw. Context is important–it is everything.

        For example, during the Internet rush he compares and contrasts CME Group with the online B-t-B market places. CME 1/10th the cheapness and ten times more value in terms of cash flow, revenues, network effects, etc.

  2. Hi John, are the issues downloadable?

  3. Not sure if I’m correct – but the “ordinary” subscription at is USD295 for 6 trial issues plus the archive, when the “special” subscription at is at USD349 for 6 trial issues plus the archive plus the signed book. The unsigned book is selling at USD20 on Amazon. Is this a really good deal?

    I’m interested at the archive but not sure if access will be lost as soon as the trial issues are published.


      You get six future issues, a $20 signed book and all past issues 850 or so. As I said about 40 cents an issue. Thousands-12 pages times 50 weeks times 38 years.

      But for the folks asking–you can simply call up Grants and ask.

  4. Yes. You can download all the isues as I have done.

    I should make a library of his valuation/case studies–they are excellent.

  5. Would be very interested in this – I’ve been currently going through his archive and they discuss a lot of credit topics; an area that is hard to get information on publicly.
