    I also visited Laissez Faire Books in New York and was invited to a party there. That guy he mentions was Roy Childs. Unfortunately, he passed away.

    Just spotted that the ‘about the host’ bio states that Bob is co-host of Contra Krugman. Sadly that is no longer the case.

    My gut tells me that the words “Value Investor” should never be hanging around with the words “Elon Musk”.

    There’s no way in the world that Tesla has a higher value than Toyota … not based on any concept of value that I can figure out.

    You know how you were saying about the housing market back in 2006 and none if it made any sense, and those loans were going out the door without scrutiny … well that’s Tesla in 2020 as far as I’m concerned. It hasn’t crashed yet but unless the entire world goes through a major paradigm shift, the fundamentals will win and it will come crashing down.
