The Dao of Capital: Austrian Investing in a Distorted World by Mark Spitznagel
Synopsis

The Dao of Capital takes the reader on a journey from ancient China to nineteenth and twentieth century Vienna, to modern, globalized markets. Using a multitude of examples, it outlines the approach of “roundabout investing” or “Austrian investing,” which is based on ancient Daoist wisdom of “gaining by losing.” See how strategic investing, rather than rapid and rushed investing, can lead you to great financial success.
