Making better decisions

Buffett has done a spectacular job separating emotions from investment decisions. In fact, that’s a trait many outstanding investors possess. Paul Schoemaker, who wrote the books Decision Traps and Winning Decisions quickly summarizes his thoughts on making better decisions. Click here (it’s a video, by the way)

Comments:
For anyone who is interested in Buffet's BUD investment, I'm offering a detailed financial model of BUD for use in your own due diligence:

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=6030703230&rd=1&sspagename=STRK%3AMESE%3AIT&rd=1

The listing contains links to a free pdf version of the model, you only have to pay for the "live" excel version.

This is not random spam. A lot of time was put into creating this model, and I own BUD stock.
