Whitney Tilson, founder and CEO of Empire Financial Research, talks to Ed Harrison about how a few big risks he took early in his career allowed him to grow his fledgling hedge fund. Heeding the advice of Warren Buffet provided him the perspective to identify the opportunities in non-consensus equities through the dotcom bubble. Tilson shares why that perspective helped develop his investment process. This clip is excerpted from a video published on Real Vision on September 13, 2019 entitled "The Endless Hunt for Value."
