RE: Conversation with Charlie Munger
I have wanted to ask question 21 after reading his book, so disappointed with his answer.

RE: Conversation with Charlie Munger
Interesting quote:

Quote:In Greece, they donâ€t want jobs: they want to sit on their asses as the money comes in. A job is a burden; it wastes 8 hours a day. If he were running the European Union (EU) he would not have let Greece in.

Quote:The failure rate of great empires in terms of geography is 100%. Just look at Athens and Britain today—everyone has passed the baton in due course. However, there is one sense in which these empires are still with us today. What was great about ancient Greece is with us in the world today—it has just moved. You can be confident that the US will not be the most dominantand admired country in the world forever. We may have a longer run than most– we may even have a long run ahead. But, we will eventually fall from the top.

But, the US has had a huge, constructive influence on Asia. Asia is important for the future of the world and many people there have learned from the USâ€s experiences. Another person who has been a great instructor to the world is Lee Kwan Yew of Singapore. He helped change China. Where did Lee Kwan Yew learn his values? He was educated in England and was English speaking all of his life. As such, a lot of the culture of this room was absorbed by Singapore. If China becomes the greatest nation in the world, some of our best virtues will be a part of that country as well.

When I first started to read Charlie Munger years ago, I can't help but find there are several similarities between him and LKY. They are about the same age, have a sense of history, are realists and are polymaths. So it does not come as a total surprise that CM mentioned LKY.
