Poor Charlie’s Almanack ➶

Lively website version of the book about the wit and wisdom of Charles T. Munger.

I’d set the text ragged right instead of justified, and engineer the publishing system so the site is viewable without JavaScript. Other than that, the most beautifully-designed website I’ve seen in 2023.

Keep things simple and remember what you set out to do.

  • Remember that reputation and integrity are your most valuable assets—and can be lost in a heartbeat.
  • Guard against the effects of hubris and boredom.
  • Don’t overlook the obvious by drowning in minutiae.
  • Be careful to exclude unneeded information or slop: “A small leak can sink a great ship.”
  • Face your big troubles, don’t sweep them under the rug.

I wish Munger and Thomas Picketty would have had some debates. Maybe I’ll ask an A.I. to simulate the two talking about an universal basic income.
