`We never learn from the past completely' : Aswath Damodaran

Inflation is deadly. It kills all financial markets, whether it is stock or bonds. I would watch inflation more than anything else. And I think we will see more global than local business cycles.

Meet Aswath Damodaran, an authority on valuation and professor of finance at Stern School of Business, New York University. On his Web site and through his books, he comes across as an intelligent, logical and yet simple person. Sample the mission statement on his Web site: “I am lucky enough to be in a field where a little knowledge and some experience goes a long way, and achieving guru status seems relatively simple.” He more than lived up to the billing.

When we met him in Chennai recently, we understood why Prof Damodaran is rated so highly by his students and readers of investment literature. His responses were simple and, at the same time, offered deep insights into the world of investment, drawing on his experience in tracking global markets for more than two decades. Business Line discussed a wide range of issues relating to the world of investment.
