A very important speech.

For anyone who has not seen this absolutely marvelous video you must watch it. I am not suggesting you agree or disagree, but I am saying that it definitely bears watching and then thinking about.

The fact that it was a commencement speech at one of best universities in our nation certainly gives it credibility in my opinion.

And, last but certainly not least, a great big thanks to you Tex for the link!

    It was interesting that he became a doctor but did not continue into a career in medicine because the government had gotten too involved. I was also taken aback by the government investigation into his firm triggered by an editorial he wrote. THe investigation, which found absolutely nothing, neverless caused him to close the firm due to costs and sheer harassment. Not the most optimistic commencement speech. Comment by Jerry is right on, most of the kids listening had no idea what he was talking about.

      Morning Donald,

      I really hope that you are not correct in your assessment of the students. Unfortunately I have to agree with you.

      I thought that the speech was amazing!

      I was brought up with the “good” American values…fear God, obey your elders and respect authority. Now in my 25th year of practice I have learned to do my best to determine the truth and as Dr. Burry stated to “first do no harm”….It is very unfortunate that Western medicine has become a balancing act between attempting to do the right thing while not being too far outside the guidelines set by big Pharm and the insurance companies for the fear of malpractice….My First experience with this approach was when I entered a liberal university at 18 and was chastised when I questioned their philosophy and latter learned that I needed to not raise any ideas outside of “their” norm and get through so that I would earn my ticket to the game.
      Having the opportunity to be along med students, I now see that there is a percentage of them that “understand” this and are buying time to get their ticket so that they may make a change…this gives me hope….

    Donald, the kids won`t listen because the parents don`t listen. The writing is on the wall, but does anybody know how to read?

    And for those who know how to read, the puppet masters have a path prepared:

    ST. LOUIS, MO (KTVI) – St. Louis Police say you shouldn’t be frightened if you see Army vehicles in the city. The U.S. Army is conducting training in St. Louis city neighborhoods during the next week.

    “…the dark ages of finance allow no such light. Mainstream economists and finance practioners, please check your premices, you have contradictions before you…” – Dr. Michael J. Burry at UCLA Economics Commencement 2012

    Sounds like he`s kicking our current financial orthodoxy down the drain.

    Kudos to him!
