An Interview with TMFCop

Last updated: 12/26/2019
The Fool:
Does ethics or 'socially responsible investing' have a place in your investment approach? How so? How not?
Absolutely not! I enjoy investing in rapacious, cancer-causing, politically incorrect companies. If I could find a stock represented by the various vices in Walter Block's "Defending the Undefendable" I'd buy them all.
The Fool:
What is your most distressing regret?
That would have to be waiting so long to start investing in the first place. I didn't get going until my mid- to late-30's and have so many years to make up for.
The Fool:
How'd you find out about the Fool? (Make your answer as colorful and truthful as possible.)
Oh so many years ago I had heard about this site where people poked fun at the market. I recall reading through it and saying, "These guys are nuts! Why are they so against 'nice and safe' mutual funds?" Took me a little while longer to read more deeply into the site to see that these guys who called themselves "Fools" actually weren't quite so foolish after all.
