Jim Chanos, the founder and managing partner of Kynikos Associates, discussed his market views, short investments, China and the election in an extensive interview with CNBC's Scott Wapner at CNBC/Institutional Investor's Delivering Alpha conference on Tuesday.
On the macro environment: "I have no idea what is going on. ... It's a crazy time as I've ever seen and the cross currents are there politically, financially, the central banks. It's tough enough trying to get our companies right," Chanos said.
He added, "Tesla has put itself in the walking insolvents by doing this [Solar City] deal."
