Today we conclude the fascinating conversation with Paul Rosanno on the topic of Rentals by the numbers. I’m going to back up the call just a bit so you might have a context for the conversation. When we left off I had just asked Paul what he is buying these days. But I want to start the conversation with his explanation for how he quantifies risk. Then we will continue on. Plus we have some headlines for you and questions FROM you. All this coming up!
