from Mauldin Economics:
I’m not certain how many interviews I’ve done over the last decade. Hundreds? I know it is a lot. There are some interviewers who can somehow tease out what you really have in you.
Tom Keene at Bloomberg, for instance, forces you to bring your A game, at whatever level you play. He brings it out of you. You know that he is smarter than you will ever be and that you should really be asking him the questions. Except that you’re not smart enough to ask the questions. I have to confess that every time I walk into the room with Tom I’m a little intimidated. I try never to show it, somewhat like the new kid on the block trying to put on a brave face, but inside I keep looking for the exit doors just in case I throw up all over myself. At the end of the day I’m still a small-town country boy from Bridgeport, Texas, trying to figure out how the big city works.
And then there’s Steve Forbes. If I’ve done hundreds of interviews, then Steve has done many thousands, on the presidential campaign trail with the best of the best, and gods did he learn the craft. I’ve done multiple interviews with Steve, and every time I sit down with him I feel that I’m with my best friend. Maybe it’s because we have a ton of shared values and I have read and admired him…Help us spread the ANTIDOTE to corporate propaganda.
