    @2.40 , i could not have agreed more with the statement of not wating to make a glance over youtube video series.
    Sit down with a coffee, or glass of wine and absorb it.
    Please don't ever change this aspect.
    In a world full of skim reading, be the novel.

    I think overly big guests like Warren Buffet, Soros, Greenspan are far too obvious and boring. The suggestion of DSK however is a great idea.

    I'd also like to see Bruce Kovner on here. Some of the most interesting interviews I've seen so far on RV have been guys I've never heard of before. Alex Gurevich for example.

    There no longer needs to be a choice between 1.Good Content and 2. Quality presentation in HD. Now we can have both. RealVisionTV has arrived at the right time for the demise of TV and the Economy.

    Instead of full transcripts, how about references. It would come in handy to have names and book titles that I can copy and paste into google.
