Munger told Musk - Tesla would fail

Musk: I was at a lunch with Munger in 2009 where he told the whole table all the ways Tesla would fail.

Made me quite sad, but I told him I agreed with all those reasons & that we would probably die, but it was worth trying anyway.

Does not like Musk or Tesla.
In case of BYD was impulsive thinking they were going to revolutionize the world with batteries.
He had been bad mouthing Amazon in the early days.
He has been hating on Crypto for a while.
He has been praising Chinese policies.
He called US was at its peak decades ago (suggesting downhill from there).

Munger seems cynical.


Munger is the reason most ordinary folks hate billionaires. Total idiot, he would prefer communist, autocratic regime over democracies. While WEB is saying don’t bet against America, but he has a sidekick who hates America and the concept of America, freedom, innovation, etc.

May be Munger should go and live in China.

What a shame.
