长青藤联盟投资者

在过去20年中,我所执教的学校耶鲁大学将其捐款组合交付给了斯文森一人。在此期间,这一组合从10亿美元多一点增长到了180亿美元,每年的平均回报超过16%,这一比率可能是任何主要大学中最高的。而且,也没有任何下降的迹象。在今年六月份结束的最新财政年度中,回报率为22.9%。

耶鲁大学的校长们过往不息,而斯文森则岿然不动。他为耶鲁大学做出的贡献超过了任何一位校长或任何某人。在大学中,观点比金钱更为重要。但是,180亿美元却可以为许多新观点创造环境。耶鲁大学有学生11,500名,这样,每个学生均摊150万美元多 (不包括耶鲁大学的建筑和艺术收藏,每一项都值几十亿美元) 。

这是如何形成的呢?斯文森如何挣到那么多的钱?每个人,不仅仅是我们耶鲁的人都在疑问。

    Angela Merkel’s Endgame?

    The collapse of coalition negotiations has left German Chancellor Angela Merkel facing a stark choice between forming a minority government or calling for a new election. But would a minority government necessarily be as bad as Germans have traditionally thought?

    Preparing for the Trump Trade Wars

    In the first 11 months of his presidency, Donald Trump has failed to back up his words – or tweets – with action on a variety of fronts. But the rest of the world's governments, and particularly those in Asia and Europe, would be mistaken to assume that he won't follow through on his promised "America First" trade agenda.

    The Platform Economy

    While developed countries in Europe, North America, and Asia are rapidly aging, emerging economies are predominantly youthful. Nigerian, Indonesian, and Vietnamese young people will shape global work trends at an increasingly rapid pace, bringing to bear their experience in dynamic informal markets on a tech-enabled gig economy.

    Profiles in Discouragement

    One day, the United States will turn the page on Donald Trump. But, as Americans prepare to observe their Thanksgiving holiday, they should reflect that their country's culture and global standing will never recover fully from the wounds that his presidency is inflicting on them.

    How Women Shape Coups

    In Zimbabwe, as in all coups, much behind-the-scenes plotting continues to take place in the aftermath of the military's overthrow of President Robert Mugabe. But who the eventual winners and losers are may depend, among other things, on the gender of the plotters.

    The Abnormality of Oil

    At the 2017 Abu Dhabi Petroleum Exhibition and Conference, the consensus among industry executives was that oil prices will still be around $60 per barrel in November 2018. But there is evidence to suggest that the uptick in global growth and developments in Saudi Arabia will push the price as high as $80 in the meantime.

    The Saudi Prince’s Dangerous War Games

    Saudi Arabia’s Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman is working hard to consolidate power and establish his country as the Middle East’s only hegemon. But his efforts – which include an attempt to trigger a war between Israel and Hezbollah in Lebanon – increasingly look like the work of an immature gambler.
