Who is Charlie Munger?
By many accounts he is a big reason why Warren Buffett has been so successful. Charlie Munger is Warren Buffett’s partner at Berkshire Hathaway.
Ironically, he grew up right down the road from Warren Buffett in Omaha Nebraska, although they didn’t know each other growing up. Charlie graduated from Harvard Law School and started his career as an attorney, however, he realized early on that it wasn’t a profession he wanted to continue with, so he started investing and developing real estate which eventually led him to meeting his future business partner.
Together, what Charlie and Warren have built over their extraordinary 60 plus years together could be considered similar to what Mick and Keith or Paul and John where able to do; these extraordinary partnerships were able to capture lightning in a bottle.
Howard Buffett, Warren's eldest son, has said that his father is the second smartest man he knows. He says Charles Munger is the first.
Like Warren Buffett, Charlie's thoughts on business and life are timeless nuggets of wisdom.
