Damnit!!! There goes my hope of living in sinful luxury after that old geezer dies.
You laugh, but I bet that's what all of his relatives are saying right now.
But really, what can you do with $44 billion that you can't do with $7 billion?
Exactly, and Buffet is the kind of man to figure that out. What does he care how much money he has? After a billion or so dollars, you're not going to get "more" rich except on paper. After a certain level you can do EVERYTHING you want, so who cares if you have more?
Do you think he lives in Omaha because he's looking for the best the world has to offer?
I read something in a book about Alexander the Great - Alexander had conquered India and was riding through a town. Alexander's men are trying to move some gymnosophists - Indian wise men - off the road so the king may pass through. The wise men refuse to budge. In frustration a Macedonian officer demands, "This man has conquered the world! What have you done?"
The philosopher replied without an instant's hesitation, "I have conquered the need to conquer the world."
Buffet is that Wise Man. He has conquered the need to be rich.
Actually, that is the wrong answer, knapp. The correct answer to the question, "what can you do with $44 billion that you can't do with $7 billion?" is, "whatever you did with your $7 billion 5.286 more times"
Oh, and this may be a little off topic, but I've been wondering: When did Margaritaville get popular enough to generate $44 billion of net worth for this guy? I mean, it's a good song, and I like to get away to the beach as much as the next guy, but come on.
Are u trying to be sarcastic? If not, you got the wrong Buffet..
This Buffet was an investor, actually considered the best investor ever, which suits right if your the 2nd richest man in the world.
Jimmy Buffet song that song, but he was actaully good friends with Warren Buffet
Yes, he was being sarcastic.
A face after that paragraph he wrote, woulda sealed the deal for me.
You people and your emoticons.
