On Tuesday, March 25th I will be welcoming a Guest Post from an individual who needs little introduction to past classmates.
Prof B comes to TMWTFS with an article that demonstrates the significance of recent events in the credit markets and their impact on the financial system as a whole. I have yet to receive the finalized draft, but from conversations with him over the past week I anticipate nothing short of what many of us have come to expect from him: An opportunity to revisit historical events and how they apply to the significance of events today.
For readers who are not acquainted with Prof B:
He is a retired MBA professor who taught Strategic Management after spending years in the private sector as a consultant to many large multinational corporations. His passions for teaching, enabling young minds and breaking through barriers of entry remain today one of the foremost impacts on my approach to Value Investing.
From these teachings and mentorship I developed my methods of The Prince, Attracting $1 Customers, Situational Analysis, Importance/Assessment of Management, Never Competing on Price, The 5% Rule and Importance of a Sustained Competitive Advantage.
If you have read these posts or know my Value Approach well enough then his influence and guidance will be apparent.
