An Hour With Ben Graham

This interview took place on March 6 1976. At the time, a struggling insurer, Government Employees Insurance Company (GEICO) was making headlines as it teetered on the brink of bankruptcy. Ben Graham understood the opportunity GEICO offered, and that’s where the interview began. Ben Graham and his partners had, at one time, been significant shareholders Read More


Fortune 500 companies don’t have as long of a leash

Tesla Video:

Charles Koch was on this stage yesterday and was talking about that actually he
0:06
said he personally would have if he were a public company he would have been
0:09
fired five times and it’s allowing failure inside the company that’s
0:12
enabled them to succeed but why is that so hard for big companies to get their
0:16
heads around
0:17
well I i think it’s some of that’s an alibi i think it’s if people want to say
0:20
I’ve got it my investors aren’t going to let me create tomorrow I I question that
0:24
a little bit i mean you have to do both
0:26
I mean you know look at the our company a man just since I’ve worked their butt
0:30
and you know Jeff Immelt send some very uncomfortable and unpopular things
0:35
investing into digital future is expensive it’s only you know now i think
0:39
investors are starting to understand what it means and we’re starting to come
0:42
to terms with that globalization these are things that at first
0:46
you’re not sure what they’re going to lead to i think the the maybe the
0:50
traditional things r 1 is the cost of failure is so much more public
0:53
so if uh and you don’t necessarily the same permission as as the starter for
0:58
the disruptor so if you had a Detroit company have the autopilot failure that
1:02
Tesla just had
1:03
yeah that would it basically halt all innovation in in one of those car
1:07
manufacturers for really know something yeah because because you have lots of
1:11
people that would be on the firing line of of that organization because of how
1:15
public that would be in and all of the risk and all the costs of uh of the the
1:20
publicity around etc so so you when you have a company that that is a disruptor
1:25
and doesn’t have to
1:26
they don’t have the same exact kind of position they they’re known for being at
1:29
the bleeding edge where things will break that gives them a permission to be
1:32
able to do far more innovative things that’s the first thing that the other is
1:35
on one thing that we found in the course that we didn’t quite realize at first is
1:39
there’s a lot of on
1:40
there’s a lot of things in a sort of Industrialists or fortune 500 companies
1:45
kind of value network or or set of partnership relationships that prevent
1:50
them from being innovative so for instance if your suppliers are also
1:54
behind then fundamentally you would have to go begin to work with a new set of
1:58
suppliers which would then disrupt long-standing relationship that you’ve
2:01
had for a very long time if on if in the case of like a Ford or GM if what you
2:06
normally do is sell through your dealership network but the future of
2:09
self-driving cars were and on-demand transportation is nothing to do
2:12
the ocean networks then fundamentally you’re going to have to disrupt your
2:15
distribution channel and I for you know a bunch of obvious reasons including you
2:20
know financial incentives and just how organizations are designed to have a lot
2:23
of organizations that don’t want to go bring their business models and enters
