    Bluntness shouldn't be confused with brilliance. She makes a number of stumbles in the interview, and does not seem as prepared as most of the rest of the interviewees.

    She does a wonderful job using cogent, real-world and understandable analyses to explain what PhD's would need several books to articulate! Priceless.

    Great point that rising asset prices is not wealth creation.

    She's well spoken, thoughtful, and blunt. Her coffee and cocaine references, to Branislav's point, make me think she may have a deep familiarity with vices, which suggests she is authentic.

    Some obvious ideas, some not so obvious. Nice interplay between simple, basic economic principals and just plain street smarts that drive investment themes. Nice job.

    Takes fundamental economic principles, applies them to the real world today, and extrapolates sage investing advice. One of the best.
