    How to overcome barriers to the long-term investments that are essential for solving the world’s biggest problems 
    There has never been a greater need for long-term investments to tackle the world’s most difficult problems, such as climate change and decaying infrastructure. And it is increasingly unlikely that the public sector will be willing or able to fill this gap. If these critical needs are to be met, the major pools of long-term, patient capital—including pensions, sovereign wealth funds, university endowments, and wealthy individuals and families—will have to play a large role. In this accessible and authoritative account of long-term capital investment, two leading experts on the subject, Harvard Business School professors Victoria Ivashina and Josh Lerner, highlight the significant hurdles facing long-term investors and propose concrete ways to overcome these difficulties. 
    Presenting the best evidence in an engaging way by using memorable stories and examples, Patient Capital describes how large investors increasingly want and need long-run investments that have the potential to deliver greater returns than those in the public markets. Yet success in such investments has been the exception. Performance has suffered from both the limitations of investors and the internal structure of their fund managers, often resulting in the wrong incentives and a lack of long-term planning. 
    Yet the challenges facing long-term investors can be surmounted and the rewards are potentially large, both for investors and society as a whole. Patient Capital shows how to make long-term investment work better for everyone.

    ABOUT THE BOOK
    Albert Einstein was born in 1879. By the time of his death in 1955, the world Einstein was born into would be completely foreign to him. Scientific breakthroughs and advancement over the 76 years of his life permanently changed the world.
    While Einstein was regarded as brilliant by both his contemporaries and predecessors, Einstein had a humble assessment of his mental faculties. 
    Einstein published his theory of relativity in 1905, at the tender age of 26, and years later it was all but validated by the scientific community at large. Yet, the source of his greatest triumph also lead to his greatest sources of consternation.
    MEET THE AUTHOR

    He likes to make music, funny voices, and people's days. He generally keeps a baseline healthy lifestyle going, and then experiments from there. Other interests include world travel, world shifts, and world non-domination. As a rule, he's more well rounded than he used to be. He's also currently training for a half marathon, and when finished will be halfway proud.

    EXCERPT FROM THE BOOK
    "It is just as important to make knowledge live and to keep it alive as to solve specific problems."
    Contact between the intellectual and the masses must not be lost. It is necessary for the elevation of society and no less so for renewing the strength of the intellectual worker; for the flower of science does not grow in the desert."
    "I am only coming to Princeton to research, not to teach. There is too much education altogether, especially in American schools. The only rational way of educating is to be an example—of what to avoid, if one can’t be the other sort."
    The wonderful things you learn in your schools are the work of many generations, produced by enthusiastic effort and infinite labour in every country of the world. All this is put into your hands as your inheritance in order that you may receive it, honor it, add to it, and one day faithfully hand it on to your children. Thus do we mortals achieve immortality in the permanent things which we create in common."
