Charlie Munger at Caltech

This video is from a 2008 DuBridge lecture. More Munger.

I'm surprised he didn't get into any trouble for his comments at 1:00 (one hour) into the talk. It's also worth listening to his perspective on derivatives and financial engineering as an end run around regulation and margin requirements at 1:17. He's pretty rough on social scientists and financiers in the early discussion.
