    He's so busy, how does he find time to do an internet blog? Nice work Ethan!

  • If I've misunderstood you, please forgive me. Mr. Buffett does not maintain a blog at http://www.berkshirehathawa..., but rather they just republish his shareholder letters going all the way to 1977.

    Cheers.

    I didn't know too much about Buffet or BH until you had introduced Ben Graham's "Intelligent Investor" not long ago, so I naturally looked him up.. Now that I'm to speed on this incredible man and his shareholding empire, I've gotta say that there's little not to like about him; he's quite affable after all..

    Anyway, I was highly disappointed shortly after you introduced "warren buffet", but I think I'm over it now..

  • Haha, sorry to disappoint Thai.

    Cheers.

  • And now that Recession hit, Warren is going to get even more wealthy. But shout out to Rockefeller, that man was insanely smart.

  • Not sure the recession will directly make Warren wealthier (maybe indirectly though picking up bargains in the depressed markets), as it has already knocked off over 20% of his net worth. That being said back in 2006 he pledged the vast majority of his wealth (which is in the Berkshire Hathaway stock) to the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. So what makes him wealthy indirectly will benefit the livelihood of millions all over the world.

    John. D was insanely smart and unbelievably hard working, almost working himself to death on a few occasions. I just finished an amazing biography on Mr. Rockefeller, Titan: The Life of John D. Rockefeller, Sr. The book is a bit imtimdating, check it out in the bookstore to see why, but I would highly reccomend it.

    Happy Holidays!
