Deep Thoughts From Jim Chanos
Good interview here with Wall Street legend Jim Chanos. In the interview he discusses his background on Wall Street, how he got into short selling, his process for short selling, the psychology behind his approach and the asymmetries of the long and short side.
The middle portion of the interview on China is a must see.
