Fooling_someEvery now and again, CNBC puts on a superlative show.  Friday morning's Squawk Box was one of those times when they hit the ball out of the park.

As I was heading out the door to work, I heard David Einhorn of Greenlight Capital begin chatting about shorting stock, soft SEC enforcement, and Allied Capital (ALD). CNBC also announced that William Ackman of Pershing Square Capital was coming on in a while.

Einhorn discussed his presentation at Jim Grant's conference Private Profits, Socialized Risk as well as his book, Fooling Some of the People All of the Time: A Long Short Story.
   

So before leaving the house, I TiVo'd Squawk, and then headed off to work. I watched the show Friday evening, and it was fantastic.  Watch the videos below and see if you agree.

Comments

this was great Barry, and I almost put it on urbandigs in the morning too. I especially like how they met on subway platform.

The key phrase I got from this, was when Ackman stated this regarding bond insurers:

"WE HAVE PASSED THE WINDOW OF SYSTEMIC RISK IF A MAJOR BOND INSURER GETS DOWNGRADED"

...or such to that effect. Cant recall exact phrasing, but that was the jist of it.
