Weekend reading 9

Here's a great piece by Matt Ridley that opens, "In all times and in all places there has been too much government." Read the whole thing - it won't take long. (Via Cafe Hayek.)

Peggy Noonan's talking the Steamroller blues.

For a little levity, a report from Scrappleface about Pat Robertson: Ignorant Remarks Caused by God's Wrath.

An interesting interview at Kiplinger.com: The World According to "Poor Charlie".

Charlie Munger, Warren Buffet's number two speaks to Kiplinger's about investing, Berkshire and more.

Charlie Munger has been Warren Buffett's partner and alter ego for more than 45 years. The pair has produced one of the best investing records in history. Shares of Berkshire Hathaway, of which Munger is vice chairman, have gained an annualized 24% over the past 40 years. The conglomerate, which the stock market values at $130 billion, owns and operates more than 65 businesses and invests in many others. Buffett's annual reports are studied by money managers. But Munger, 81, has always been media shy. That changed when Peter Kaufman compiled Munger's writing and speeches in a new book, Poor Charlie's Almanack: The Wit and Wisdom of Charles T. Munger ($49.00, PCA Publications). Here Munger speaks with Kiplinger's Steven Goldberg.
