  1. @16:54 the building in Manhattan bought for 432M$ in 1996 and sold for 2200M$ in 2017, that's exactly an 8% a year CAGR (Compounded Annual Growth Rate) over a 21 years period.
    The Dow Jones in the same period did 9% CAGR (dividend reinvested)

    So I don't know why he glorifies an investment that did worse than the equity market as a whole.
    And thank God he says they bought it in a stressed period and it was located in Park Avenue.

  2. I think I have had Brookfield stock for over 30 years back when it was Edper, Hees, Brascan, Coscan. It used to have a very complicated owner ship structure. Anyway I made money by doing what Brookfield was doing. It sold Brookfield Homes , I sold, when they starting buying I bought , when they bought the Brookfield Homes convertible pref so did I. There were so few owners of that issue it couldn't trade.

  3. He is a thief, a fake, and took advantage of a situation and scored off my grandparents. And took advantage of people who trusted him in 2004. i cant prove it without a document stole from me by power of attorney of estate. But great name and he is very smart. i have forgave but cant forget. But this is closure cause my grand mother who was in his corner would say have faith and dont let past destroy your future. God Bless Bruce Flatt and i wish you the best.

  4. he doesn't invest in bitcoin because its speculation. The holy grail of investing is cashflow. How can you finance a bitcoin purchase? you don't. Crypto speculators don't understand finance/cashflow
