The news broke this morning that famed money manager Stanley Druckenmiller was retiring from managing outside money after some thirty years in the business.  Two themes emerge from the story.  One is that from Druckenmiller’s perspective managing a large pool of money has become more difficult over time.  The second is that achieving some sort of life balance while managing money is fraught with compromise.  Today’s screencast explores these two issues:
