Daily Journal Annual Meeting Questions
« on: February 09, 2018, 11:01:20 PM »
Next Wednesday the Daily Journal Annual Meeting will take place.

So i think its a good idea to think about good questions for the meeting, not to bore
Munger with dumb questions about Bitcoin.  ;)
Last year Munger was in particular good shape, eating Sees Candy after the meeting.  :)


Here are two questions from the Motley Fool board:
1. What book need to be written that would interest you very much?
2. Buffett always talk about your 30 second mind could you roughly walk us through how you think when facing an issue?
I will add 3 more questions:
3. Could you talk about the tax cut effects to Berkshire Hathaway and the economy?
4. Do you have some advice how to include mental model thinking in your everyday life?
5. What advice would you give parents to raise their kids?


Additions to the list and asking these questions at the meeting are welcomed.  :)

Is it ok to ask for Charlies perspectives on WFCs recent development?

Of course. That's a very good question.  :)

Thoughts on compelled speech around gender neutral pronouns, NBC's regulation of hugging in the work place and the wider implications of that i.e. Can men and women work together, third wave feminism, et al?

You never know when you'll have the opportunity to ask a 94-year-old legend another question again; in my opinion, your thinking is spot-on to get life's biggest questions out of the way first. This sort of inquiry will doubtlessly lead to a mental model that can carry 80% of life's freight by itself.

I'm not sure everybody is going to get ScottHall's irony here.

Translation of what ScottHall was saying: Ask a big and interesting question where Munger can add value. [My commentary: why would you waste your (and everybody's) time asking a guy who was born before women could vote questions about women's roles in 2018? He is a wise man, but geez...]

#4 and 5 have been asked regularly.
On 4, he always suggests, gaining fluency and using a checklist.  A refined question might be does he use a written checklist before major decisions?  Unfortunately that would only elicit a yes or no response.

On 5, he always says with a chuckle, I have barely done a decent job with my own kids.

IMO, don't ask abstract or meta questions.

Have fun. 8)
