Carl Icahn Interview - Wall Street Week

I notice from time to time months will pass by and I haven't turned on CNBC or Bloomberg once. Listening to interviews on those networks, even if it is a high quality guest (extremely rare), is now frustrating for me at best. Due to time constraints guests usually do not have the opportunity to go into detail on their thoughts and you're left with a only headline.

I've found myself spending the time that was formally wasted on network news reading books, newsletters or watching/listening to more lengthy podcast/video interviews. As I've mentioned in the past, I try and divide my time equally between bullish and bearish views to make sure I'm hearing both sides of the argument in every asset class.

The interview below, with investing legend Carl Icahn this week on Wall Street Week, is one where he has the opportunity to speak and elaborate on his views. The first ten minutes is a discussion on his childhood. If you want to jump right into the meat of the financial markets you can begin at the 10 minute mark.
