Charlie Munger på BBC

BBC sendte forleden et lengre program om Buffett der hans omgangskrets også ble intervjuet. Charlie Munger var en dem og er Buffetts kritiske røst i Berkshire Hathaway. Kritisk og usensurert var han også i dette intervjuet som du kan se ved å klikke her.

Munger om hvordan aksjonærer bør oppføre seg når de opplever temporære prisfall på sine aksjer:

You can argue that if you’re not willing to react with equanimity to a market price decline of fifty percent two or three times a century, you’re not fit to be a common shareholder and you deserve the mediocre result that you’re going to get.

Munger om politikk:

Both parties have wings that are full of idiots. That is the nature of the game. And the reason it has worked as well as it has is that the people in the middle have sort of over time tuned out the idiots on both sides. But every once in a while, the idiots get in control. And, of course, that has terrible consequences. That’s the nature of the system.
