What Warren Buffet thinks on US economy, traditional modeling etc...

Check this great article - an interview with Warren Buffett on Fortune Magazine's latest edition. It is most surprising to find that he knew the sub prime mess was going to start in early 2007, when most people had no clue ( Check his notes to shareholders in the Berkshire Hathaway Annual Reports ). While I am a strong fan of Warren ( who would not be! ) and have started reading the Annual Reports of BRK and his insights are awesome.

What Warren thinks... - Apr. 14, 2008

And I heard from one of my friends at Tuck that the Annual General Meeting of BRK is held in Nebraska and is a long day meeting where Warren, Charlie, Bill Gates and the CEOs of the major portfolio companies sit to answer questions from the shareholder. Any person who is there can ask a question about anything under the sun right from his investing philosophy to any detail of the portfolio company. But ofcourse, you either need to be a shareholder or an analyst. I guess it is easier to be the latter considering that a Class A share of BRK costs $150,000!!! This is ONE share of BRK!!

What amazes me is the ease with which he accepts his mistakes and moves on - which can be seen in the BRK Annual Reports. In addition, 99% of his total net worth is in BRK and he just takes $100,000 as salary. No bonus at all! This to me is a true investor, because all his incentives are aligned well to increase per share value of BRK.

How I wish I could buy one BRK share considering that it doubles almost every 2.3 years ( based on average CAGR over the past 30 year)...
