`In Strategic Asset Allocation John Campbell and Luis Viceira go beyond the usual capital-markets research monographs that survey a broad swath of asset pricing and investment theory. Instead, they dig deeply and insightfully into how an individual investor would best allocate wealth into broad asset classes over a lifetime, bearing in mind age, risk preferences, changing market conditions, and uninsurable income shocks. With this clearly written synthesis of the best recent research on the topic, much of it their own, Campbell and Viceira have achieved excellence!' Darrell Duffie, Graduate School of Business, Stanford University
`At last we have a book that lays out how we should use the basic insights of mean-variance analysis to advise investors on their their lifetime portfolio problem. It is a pleasure to read when one sees such sensible and lucid application of highbrow financial theory to the most practical and important of problems. This book represents a major theoretical breakthrough that allows us to translate the principles of intertemporal financial and econometric theory into concrete advice for investing.' Robert J. Shiller, Yale University
