    Great Interview: Gaby certainly knows what's what - I just wanted to understand her comment, though, In order to build a private capital, you can't really screw over previous shareholders, because new shareholders won't believe you when they say that you won't do it again. It is in their best interest to treat the investors fairly. This seems a funny statement; shareholders consistently believe what they are told, despite previous & current evidence. Argentina Bonds anyone? -- WeWork/Lyft/Uber? -- S&P and other Rating Agencies? Enron ? Damn, even Mr B. Madoff ?? Definitely a more nuanced topic than the throw away (?) line here..... Probably a whole series by Grant !

    Best effort yet by Alex, IMO. Yes, she is a great highly organized and wonderful communicating Guest, but it is an Art Form to know how to deftly let the presentation unfold, as It can’t be taught and their ain’t no Manual for it—it is a matter of experience and having a sixth sense while the piece is unfolding as to how you think the Audience is receiving it. Alex has come a long way and is developing nicely. I especially liked the fact that he had her listen to her first two presentations so she would know what we had heard before—I think she was able to give us an even “tighter” succinct presentation than she might otherwise have been able to by following Alex’s suggestion.

    This was excellent. She is really smart. I would not necessarily pile into this trade here though, as politics are messy. I would wait to see if it pulls back on something negative.
