Movies Every investor must watch
There are some wonderful Hollywood movies. Actually, watching some of the blockbusters, I felt I learnt more about certain events and aspect of investing in 2 hours than in 200 hours of reading.
Let me start with the masterpiece:
WALL STREET (1987)
Oliver Stone’s masterpiece with a wonderful performance from Michael Douglas, Charlie Sheen and Martin Sheen. Michael Douglas went on win the Academy Award for the best actor. A #must watch for every investor.
This movie gave us one of the most unforgettable lines. The most famous dialogue “Greed, for a lack of better word, is good”. Watch it below.
Read 500 pages like this every day. That’s how knowledge works. It builds up, like compound interest. All of you can do it, but I guarantee not many of you will.
Every week you will hear from me one excellent book to read.
Going forward, Cura8 will be available on our telegram channel.
