I've mentioned before that sometimes CNBC has some great interviews. Yesterday, legendary investor Jim Chanos co-hosted squawk box on CNBC and gave his views on a number of issues such as short selling and mark to market.
Jim Chanos on short selling.
Expiration of Short Selling Ban
On government intervention. Interesting perspective, the problems may be too big for government to fix.
Government's Involvement in Banks
...on mark to market, such a common sense argument, these phony free market capitalists that praise the virtues of the free market but then want to suspend prices that they don't like are the biggest of big hypocrites.
Market to Market Controversy
On his short position on Macquarie Bank and its flawed business model.
Legendary Short Seller Jim Chanos
Well worth a watch.
