[04:51]What reference material did Edward use in his first trip to the blackjack table in Vegas, and why was Claude Shannon at MIT — a person known to be difficult to reach — willing to spare five minutes to meet with him around this time? [12:01]What method did Edward and Claude devise to beat roulette with the assistance of what MIT considers to be the first wearable computer? [15:11]Edward looks great for a man in his 60s — which is especially incredible when you consider he’s 89! Is it just a case of lucky genetics, or does he follow some kind of mortality-cheating health regimen? Has his approach to remaining in shape changed over the years? [17:13]How did finance and investing enter the picture for Edward? Where did this lead, and who did he meet along the way? [25:19]What was it about Warren Buffett that made Edward come away from their first meeting convinced he’d someday be the richest man in the world? [34:22]If Edward were teaching a seminar in investing to a modern student body (some of whom might not possess an aptitude for math), what frameworks would he impart to get them started? [38:55]What lessons learned from investing are transferable to other areas of life? [43:50]Even at 89, Edward considers himself a long-term thinker. How might those of us who struggle to think beyond the short-term be more like Edward? [45:59]How did Edward suss out that something was fishy about the way the Madoff brothers were doing business 17 years before everybody else finally caught on? [50:58]Exploring the mental models of externalities, the tragedy of the commons, and fundamental attribution errors. [59:15]What you should be reading and listening to if you want to enact positive change in the world right now — politically or evolutionarily. [1:08:29]What investors, aside from Warren Buffett, impress Edward — and why? [1:13:48]How has Edward known where to draw the line between growing a business and withdrawing before it consumed all else in his life? What catalyzed his decision to wind things down? [1:17:48]What does independence mean to Edward and how did he spend his time after winding down the investment side of things? [1:22:52]Is there anything Edward’s particularly curious about learning right now? [1:24:27]Pondering a conversation between Joseph Heller and Kurt Vonnegut and other parting thoughts.

Before Melissa Caddick, there was Bernie Madoff

Just the Gist

Remember how we said we’re a weekly-ish podcast? New studio episodes are coming soon (we promise!) but this week we’re republishing one of favourites from 2020: the OG Ponzi schemer Bernie Madoff who stole up to 100 billion dollars through his fraudulent investment company. Bernie would tell his clients he was investing their money into super successful stocks (and show them the fake statements to prove it) but he was actually funnelling it all into his own bank account to fund his lavish lifestyle. Bernie was eventually busted during the Global Financial Crisis and sentenced to 150 years in prison. He served just over 10 years of his sentence before he died last year. We give you Just The Gist, but if you want more there’s this: WATCH The Wizard of Lies on Binge https://binge.com.au/movies/asset-the-wizard-of-lies!23114 WATCH the TV series Madoff https://www.amazon.com/Madoff-Season-1/dp/B01BGHYZ7Y LISTEN to the podcast ‘Ponzi Supernova’ https://podcasts.apple.com/au/podcast/ponzi-supernova/id1232020925 Get tickets to the Just The Gist LIVE shows! https://moretalent.com.au/tours/just-the-gist/ Follow us on Insta! @JustTheGistPodcast @RosieWaterland @JacobWilliamStanley Email us your suGISTions! justthegistpodcast@gmail.comSee omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.
