Rob tells:

  • How feeling helpless in the wake of 9/11 enabled him to strip away illusions of control

  • How market conditions change but the human psyche does not

  • How attacking an analyst is not the same as interrogating an investment thesis.

We also discussed:

  • How the green economy is attracting real capex, and is an investable phenomenon

  • How tough it is to manage money and manage an investment firm at the same time

  • How an ability to listen well is characteristic of excellent investment teams.
