I liked this comment and it somewhat aligns with what I believe Jeremy Grantham said of the early 30's that in the depression growth outperformed value.

"Probably our best ideas over the past ten or 12 years have been ideas that looked cheap and which actually ensnared a lot of value investors. The investors didn’t realize that these businesses were deteriorating faster than their ability to generate cash. ...for most declining businesses, management tends to redeploy cash flow into things outside of their core competencies in a desperate attempt to save their jobs. I said, some of the best short ideas can look cheap from a valuation standpoint. " Jim Chanos, page 20

Jim Chanos: "I also think the renminbi is overvalued." (p.25)

There's a contrarian view! LOL
