HEY KID, HAVE I GOT AN IDEA FOR YOU
Time interviews two Yale professors who believe that young people can actually reduce their risk by using leverage in their early investing years in order to get more exposure to stocks. "It's not as crazy as it sounds because it helps people better diversify risk across time. It would be really crazy if you only invested in the stock market one year of your life, because that could be a really bad year. That could be 2008. People do have the right intuition, that it's better to spread exposure to the stock market over time. The problem is, having just a few thousand dollars in the market in your 20s doesn't give you very much diversification across time when you have hundreds of thousands or millions of dollars in the stock market in your late 50s and 60s."
