    has warned investors that it faces a growing risk of significantly higher tax bills because of efforts by US states to end a lucrative tax break that Washington lobbyists have fought hard to preserve. A California proposal to levy state tax on carried interest — the share of investment profits that hedge fund and private equity managers are paid as an incentive to hit higher returns — faces its second key legislative hurdle this week.

Higher liquidity could be a new normal for Berkshire unless the company engages in major buybacks or dividends.
