The Kevin and Fred Show 

Jun 22, 2020

In this special episode of the podcast, I’m joined by educator, author and thought leader Adam Robinson. Adam’s writings, analyses, thoughts and insights have inspired us and have provided us with a new lens with which to see and understand the world. He is a long-term mentor of ours and someone we’ve looked up to for years. It’s truly an honor to have him on our show. Adam talks about how questions lead to thinking and possibly new outcomes to create a less perilous future. 

 

Adam Robinson is an American educator, freelance author, and a US Chess Federation life master. He is the co-founder of The Princeton Review. Adam Robinson co-authored Cracking the SAT with John Katzman, the only test preparation book ever to become a The New York Times Bestseller List best seller. His other books include Cracking the LSAT, What Smart Students Know, and The RocketReview Revolution. Robinson currently advises the heads of large hedge funds, family offices, and other financial institutions on all global asset classes–global equities, US sectors, bonds, currencies, and commodities–using a unique approach that combines game theory, systems thinking, Bayesian analysis, and behavioral economics to outthink global markets and anticipate when major trends will change.

 

To say that the times we’re living in are challenging is an understatement. It’s clear that our world is in crisis in so many ways, from the economy to health, social unrest and divisiveness. The world we have right now is the sum total of our collective thinking and in order to change anything, it starts with us going right back to our thinking. 



We also discussed; 

  • How the world we have is product of our thinking
  • Why Covid-19 is just amplifying trends that were already there 
  • The Google experiment and loneliness epidemic 
  • The dangers and opportunities of the times we’re living through. 
  • The two kinds of growth in this world and how we ended up where we are financially.
