by earl, 3856 days agoWarren Buffet: "Sleeping around, to continue our metaphor, can actually be useful for large derivatives dealers because it assures them government aid if trouble hits. In other words, only companies having problems that can infect the entire neighborhood I wont mention names are certain to become a concern of the state (an outcome, Im sad to say, that is proper). From this irritating reality comes The First Law of Corporate Survival for ambitious CEOs who pile on leverage and run large and unfathomable derivatives books: Modest incompetence simply wont do; its mindboggling screw-ups that are required."
From the 2008 Letter to Investors of Berkshire Hathaway Inc. A brilliant read.
