An Interview with TMFWizard
Last updated: 7/17/2007
What's your favorite activity (within the realm of good taste)?
If you get a bathtub and then fill it with Cool Whip, and then you.....oh, wait.....did you say within the realm of good taste???<BR><BR>Huh.....hmmmmm.......never mind.
If you could go back in time and witness one event in history, what would you go back and see?
Warren Buffett, the noted investor, had this to say in the Nov. 22, 1999 issue of Fortune magazine:<BR>"...the money that had been made since the dawn of aviation by all of this country's airline companies was zero. Absolutely zero. Sizing all this up, I like to think that if I'd been at Kitty Hawk in 1903 when Orville Wright took off, I would have been far-sighted enough, and public-spirited enough to shoot him down. I mean, Karl Marx couldn't have done as much damage to capitalists as Orville did."<BR><BR>I like to think that if I could go back and time and witness this event......I would shoot Warren Buffett's kneecaps off.<BR><BR>Call me crazy, but I think the Orville and Wilbur's contribution has had a greater positive impact on the planet than anything Warren's done. Of course, that's just my opinion, I could be wrong.
Does ethics or 'socially responsible investing' have a place in your investment approach? How so? How not?
It actually doesn't, but not for the usual reasons. Some people don't do "socially responsible investing" because the returns are not that great. Some don't do it because they choose other venues (charity, etc.) in which to be socially responsible.<BR><BR>I don't do it for the simple fact that I possess no ethics nor a shred of social responsibility.
