    OMAHA GIVES ME PERSPECTIVE Supermoney is capitalised income option etcFrom 1973 to 1974 the market fell 50% back to the level of 1959The final 2 years of the bubble 7172 reflected a shifty from the go go era buy great companies and not sell them to the nifty fiftyIt was 35 years from 1929 to 1965 and it would be another 33 years before the next bubble would emergeThe average punter likes to have stocks rather than mutual funds so as he can watch the stock prices He really enjoys looking up the prices each dayPenn Central was the 6th largest company in the US when it went broke in 1970The first reuisite for managing other peoples money is a sense of responsibility

    Adam Smith's writing style is stupendous Get the book because it is hilarious intelligent and so old and yet so relevant Don't uite agree with his idea of Supermoney but may be it was the times the 60s in the US The small bit about Buffett is worth reading over and over again Another brilliant thing is a reflection of what the 60s and the early 70s were in the US Wild and scary99 The pursuit of money uestioned173 onwards praise for Graham and BuffettPages after 250 also brilliant Intelligent and Hilarious

    Engrossing What a clever book An entertaining sublimely ironic style wrapped around topics that have lost none of their relevance while portraying the market meltdown of the early 70ies Most astonishing find is that very last chapter which is rich with musings about sustainability and the direction in which unfettered capitalism may take the world Protestant Ethic yes really The Greening of America yes really and less surprisingly in his appearance than the uotes Keynes'Long before the term counter culture came to be bandied Keynes had delineated the lopsidedness of the accumulative society We have been trained too long to strive he said and not to enjoy Perhaps in a hundred years he wrote a hundred years from 1931 that is the chief problem of mankind would be to live agreeably and wisely and well'

    I read about this book for the first time in Alice Shroeders's the Snowball and thought that if it is indeed the first book to ever mention Warren Buffet I should add it to my reading list to see what was said at the time It turn out that this section is tiny The story is mainly about a former trader who through various lessons in life has finally come to understand the dangers of speculation and the power of long term compounding But the key takeaway for me was the highlight on caution and scepticism at all time in other words even what looks like the safest swiss bank can fail It's funny because I am a French expat working in trading and living in Switzerland and I could totally relate to what he was saying even 40 years later In my opinion his observations of the Swiss culture are spot on I also believe like him that the protestant culture of industry and thrift was at the root of capitalism

    I heard good things about this book but it didn't strike a cord with me In it's day it was probably really good however I didn't like the style of writing and freuently got lost Not sure if that was fully the writing or the topic or disinterest on my part or what However there was some good information in there but it wasn't worth rummaging for in my opinion
