Bill ackman

Bill Ackman tells Reuters Impact Players host Robert Wolf that betting against a firm – even if it’s a possible pyramid scheme – is perceived as dirty, while going long a firm for profit is accepted as normal behavior. Bill Ackman sat down for a 40 minute interview with Reuters. Ackman says if he was the chairman of the SEC he would have regular meetings with David Einhorn, Jim Chanos, and other great short sellers. He discussed Wachovia, Herbalife, J.C. Penney, MBIA, fly fish investing, and other ideas in the interview. We posted some segments earlier, below is the entire video.
