High Modernist Investors and Postmodern Investors

Hey! Nathan here.

I’m thrilled to share this piece with you from behind the paywall of Byrne Hobart’s excellent newsletter, The Diff. Byrne comes from the finance world, but is also a first-rate writer and thinker with serious range.

I loved it and I know you will too.
