A kako je to počelo, iz knjige Deep Value: Why Activist Investors and Other Contrarians Battle for Control of Losing Corporations:
Warren Buffett first heard about Charlie Munger on a Sunday afternoon in 1957. He was meeting with two potential investors for his nascent investment partnership, Dr. Edward “Eddie” Davis and his wife, Dorothy, in their home. Sitting in their living room, the young Buffett— he was 26 but looked 18 according to Eddie— laid out the ground rules for an investment in the partnership. For over an hour Buffett described his philosophy on managing money and the unusual terms of his proposed investment partnership— Buffett would have absolute control over the money and would not tell his partners how he was invested; they would get an annual summary of his returns and could only withdraw the money annually on December 31. All the while, Eddie Davis sat in the corner, doing nothing , and not, so it seemed to Buffett, paying attention to him. When Buffett finished his high-speed soliloquy, Dorothy, who had been listening very intently, turned to Eddie and said, “What do you think?” 1 Eddie responded, “Let’s give him a hundred thousand dollars.” Politely, Buffett replied, “Doctor Davis, you know, I’m delighted to get this money. But you weren’t really paying a lot of attention to me while I was talking. How come you’re doing it?” Eddie turned to Buffett and said, “Well, you remind me of Charlie Munger.” Buffett replied, “Well, I don’t know who this Charlie Munger is, but I really like him.” The Davises invested with Buffett, but he and Munger would not meet for another two years. When they did finally meet, the result would be one of the most enduring and successful American business partnerships ever formed.
Buffett hoped that he might be able to use his charm to influence the company to do the right thing. Still, he hadn’t drifted far from Graham’s cigar butt investment philosophy when he finally met Charlie Munger.
Buffett and Munger met on a hot summer Friday in 1959 at the Omaha Club. Charles T. Munger, six years Buffett’s senior, didn’t know much about the 28-year-old Buffett. Before long , the two were talking simultaneously and understanding each other perfectly.
