Einstein Answered Sixth Graders

I came across this a couple of weeks ago: To read it, click here. It is the best thing I have stumbled upon in a long time.

Why do I like it so much? If Einstein could find the time to write back to a sixth grader in just five days, what’s our excuse for failing to engage in a conversation, reply to tweet, or respond to an email from a student? Surely it is not that we are too busy or too important. There is also a great lesson for students: professors really appreciate good questions. Young Phyllis’ question is simple, yet profound. It begs for a response.

To answer your question Phyllis, business faculty tend to see value in hedging strategies.
