dunyanin en basarili yatirimcisinin akil danistigi kisi. gecen sene verdigi roportajin uzun haline denk geldim. link.
bir bilgenin 95 yilin ardindan hayat, insanlar ve is dunyasi hakkindaki dusuncelerini okumak cok ufuk acici. biden’i, trump’i filan gecin. amerika’nin ustunde yukseldigi omuzlarin sahibi bu insanlar.
yazidan cok begendigim bir kac parcayi paylasayim:
“ı think that amazon has more to fear from costco than costco has to fear from amazon. because [costco has] a better warehouse situation, much cheaper, plus a public that totally believes that anything they sell will be high quality and low price, and so, and they’re just the sleeping giant that nobody —they’re coming late to any sort of delivery system. but in the end they’ll be more efficient and they’re already more trusted. so ı would say all the figures show that costco has nothing to fear from amazon.”
“part of the reason ı’ve been a little more successful than most people is ı’m good at destroying my own best-loved ideas. ı knew early in life that that would be a useful knack and ı’ve honed it all these years, so ı’m pleased when ı can destroy an idea that ı’ve worked very hard on over a long period of time. and most people aren’t.”
“they [architects] have huge commercial pressures. most people who are stupid are under commercial pressures to be stupid. absolutely.”
“you only get a few opportunities, and you have to grab them aggressively when they come because even in the most favored life, they’re really rare.”
“but they just, it’s dangerous to think you know too much and have your ego all involved in showing how smart you are and all that.
ıt’s not an accident we use all of this self-deprecatory humor at berkshire. ıt’s required for sanity. ıt really is.”
“both warren and ı feel it’s our moral duty to be as rational as we can possibly be. a lot of people who are brilliant in some ways tend to make these utterly asinine decisions in other ways. we both tend to collect the asininities of the world in a kind of checklist. and we try to avoid everything on the checklist.”
not: yazi paywall’a takiliyor. sign-in dedigi yere kadar kisimdan bir kac cumleyi kopyalayip, google’da aratin. cikan sonuca tiklayin, google amp uzerinden okuyabilirsiniz.
