    HOW can we not love uncle warren ? I LOVE THIS GUY the best uncle ever !!

    As a post script, the tax aspect is interesting also. Mr Buffett, as chairman of Berkshire, has a duty tominimisea tax liability that would be around $400m in the event those capital gains were crystalised.

    Note that Mr Buffett’s stake in Berkshire, worth $63bn, is about a fifth of the company’s $305bn market capitalisation. The value of that perfectly legal piece of tax avoidance to him personally is $80m.

    Yet it has passed largely without comment that the very rich man who says he would like higher taxes on the rich has pulled off a deal designed entirely to avoid a large tax bill. America’s favourite billionaire indeed.++
