For this unusual episode of The Traders Podcast, your host Rob Booker and his producer speak with the CEO of Rob Booker Japan, Mr. Bradley Fried, about David Gelb’s fascinating 2011 documentary titled “Jiro Dreams of Sushi” (2011).

And though a film about a master sushi chef may not seem like it has anything to do with trading, the reason we discuss this documentary is because it illustrates golden principles that can help traders — as well as anyone with the desire and ambition to be successful in his or her work. We talk about the pursuits of perfection, self-improvement and the dedication of one’s entire life to becoming the best at a particular craft. You won’t want to miss this one!

Not really about trading, to be honest.

Rob, their main assembly partner Foxconn was caught out using child workers in the factories.

Apple is notorious for built in obsolesence. Before Apple how many mobile phones were made where you couldn’t replace the battery?

But the bottom line is as long as Apple’s phones (maps excluded) work as expected then they will still ride the momentum from users trapped into using their Ecosystem (like me!).
