LJ v LS CEO Req for Invest Info: Peter Blanken & Michael Burry.

Peter Blanken: I have been in a few situations recently where people I respect and love have given me their opinion on certain matters. I have also had the dubious pleasure of listening to less-than-credible “specialists” mouth-fart about subjects they in actually did not know a lot about. ….. The greatest tragedy of mankind — or one of them — is that people needlessly hold wrong opinions in their minds. All opinions are not equal. And it is not the person we love or respect who necessarily has an opinion which really counts, at least not if they lack believability. Ray Dalio defines believability as follows: “Believable people as those who have repeatedly and successfully accomplished the thing in question — who have a strong track record with at least three successes — and have great explanations of their approach when probed”. From this he extracts another very valuable thought which many people who argue for the sake of arguing would do better to consider: “If both parties are peers, it’s appropriate to argue. But if one person is clearly more knowledgable than the other, it is preferable for the less knowledgeable person to approach the more knowledgable one as a student and for the more knowledgable one to act as a teacher”. Now, in Bridgewater’s organization they have figured this out to the most granular level, because they actually assign a believability score to each participant in a discussion, in real time. This means that when the organisation needs to make important investment decisions, they will take each person’s input and put that through the filter. This may lead to a decision being voted for by a majority, but actually rejected, because the believability score of that majority was lower than the assigned knowledge, experience or background of the minority. That’s pretty powerful stuff. ………. When two people believe opposing things, chances are that one of them is wrong. It pays to find out if that someone is you. …. holding wrong opinions in one’s head and making bad decisions based on them instead of having thoughtful disagreements is one of the greatest tragedies of mankind. ….. That quote is from Ray Dalio, the founder and Grand Poobah at Bridgewater Associates, the largest hedge fund in the world and a successful billionaire entrepreneur. Dalio likes to develop the idea of thoughtful disagreement, in which the goal is not to convince the opposite party that you are right, but simply to find out which view is true and then what to do about it.  Both parties must be motivated by a genuine fear of missing important perspectives. In such a situation it is about exploring the truth and not simply arguing. Or “winning” the argument. In reality, the winners of an argument, if there is such a thing, are those who leave the discussion having learned something. Whereas the losers are those who stubbornly cling to their thoughts, beliefs and reasoning without having given any consideration to the others’ point of view. What is interesting is that, being from a multi-cultural European background, I very frequently see how this plays out depending on the origins of the parties involved. Often, discussions get more heated with people from the south of Europe, considered more “hot-blooded”, than people from the North, more “cold-blooded”. The next time you find yourself in a discussion seemingly not leading towards agreement or resolution, consider this notion of thoughtful disagreement. Try to stand apart from the discussion. Hold you tongue and go through these 3 steps: * Listen with intent, meaning that you seek to understand the other person’s viewpoint first and foremost. * Take into consideration how believable the other person is. Find points of agreement and build on those. Determine points of disagreement and focus on clarifying them. * Stay open to the notion that if the 2 ideas are opposing, and one of them could be wrong, there is actually a possibility the person having it wrong is you. You might also consider sharing this methodology with the ”opposing” party and see if that improves the quality of the exchange. The goal should not be to bludgeon the other into accepting your views, but to leave the disagreement smarter that when you started and that this leads to improved decision making and a harmonious conclusion. – CNBC: Ray Dalio says ‘greatest tragedy of mankind’ is people clinging to wrong opinions; The Startup: How to have better discussions — the art of thoughtful disagreement; How to make better decisions: consider Believability.

I met my wife on match.com. My profile said that I’m a medical student with only one eye an awkward social manner, and 145 thousand dollars in student loans. She wrote back: You’re just what I’ve been looking for! She meant honest. So let me be honest making money is not what I thought it would be. This business kills the part of life that is essential! The part, that has nothing to do with business. For the past two years, my insides have felt, like they’re eating themselves. All the people I respected, won’t talk to me anymore, except through lawyers. People want an authority to tell them how to value things, but they chose this authority not based on facts or results; they chose it because it seems authoritative. Or familiar! And I’m not, and never have been familiar. Guys I don’t know how to be sarcastic. I don’t know how to be funny. I don’t know how to work people. I just know how to read numbers. …….. Would I buy a car from him? No! Is he right about the mortgage market? Let’s find out. Let’s find out! Look, it’s two very simple questions: Is there a housing bubble? And if there is: how exposed are the banks? Whoo ho ho, let’s go to the press man! This is a massive story! Who wouldn’t publish it? I got it, I got it! I got it, I got it. And what am I supposed to do? Want me to write a piece called: “We’re all fucked!” Yes! That’s a perfect title! – The Big Short: Trailer: Prologue: Burry: Met My Wife on Match.com: Burry: Just Know how to read numbers; Shorts turn the tables on Wall Street: Burry analyzes Subprime MBS, The Jenga Blocks Dogshit Housing Market: Financial World: Ali v Foreman; 60 Min: Inside the 2008 Collapse: 01:02:03; Bloomberg: Burry Investing in Farmland with water, Gold.
