*Eric Balchunas, the Senior ETF analyst for Bloomberg Intelligence, recently published a fantastic book, The Bogle Effect.

*Eric and Andrew discuss what a fiduciary means and how they impact investments, particularly ETFs.

*What is passive investing versus active funds, and how has Vanguard disrupted the investing community.
