Re: What have we learned over last 10 years?

I don’t know if I learned a fundamental new thing, but it’s been an interesting ten years for long bonds. Harry’s deceased. He’s not around to guide us. Would he have said this time it’s different?

Re: Invest like Buffett?

I dont have enough info to know, if he'd still be a billionaire had he been born in the ghetto.
