Moshe A. Milevsky has published 13 books (translated into 6 languages) and over sixty peer-reviewed scholarly papers in addition to hundreds of popular articles and blog pieces.

My current research interests revolve around the area of financial history and the evolution of (retirement) insurance & annuity products over the centuries.
@TheLordGave I'm sorry. Did you just write: "Central Limit Theorem" and "Free Will" in the same tweet?
@pcmichaud I agree that different debt accounts would be hard to capture/model, but one should be able to obtain expressions for maximum debt as a function of expected discounted future earnings (human capital), making reasonable assumptions for housing price growth, etc.

I think January 27th should be designated Euler's day. I use him more than Archimedes.
For the record -- yes, I know these statements can come back to haunt you -- but it's the last paper I plan to write on the topic. Time to move on, really. Don't wan't to be known as "Professor Tontine" (means fool in Spanish) https://t.co/CDmCBga4JJ
Tontines vs. Annuities in the 21st Century https://t.co/fXiIhRqdws New report from the Society of Actuaries.
@SOActuaries posted our "Tontines vs. Annuities" https://t.co/fXiIhRqdws paper. I know it's dangerous to say this, but will be *last* paper I write on tontines. Time to move on, really. Otherwise, I risk being labeled "professor tontine" (which means foolish in Spanish)
[Ah, yes, here is one...] https://t.co/Lu8hENnPR5
More "flattering" would be a link to my book with that title, or just a mention of it... https://t.co/07chlTONc4
[Very nice. Now, where have I seen that concept before? It sounds vaguely familiar.] No Pension? You Can ‘Pensionize’ Your Savings https://t.co/pdl9NwxMRb
