Liberal education, model investor

BusinessPundit links to "A Latticework of Mental Models," which talks about how Charlie Munger, who manages Warren Buffet's holding company, Berkshire Hathaway, approaches investing. It's interesting to me for two reasons. One, we learn via mental models with which we process facts. Two, a wide range of models - a liberal education - can help investors succeed.

Speaking to a group of investment students, Munger challenges them

to broaden their vision of the market, of finance, and of economics in general; to see them not as separate disciplines but as part of a larger body of knowledge, one that also incorporates psychology, engineering, mathematics, physics, and the humanities.
