    Sorry, Buffett is a corrupt crony capitalist. Buffett has used taxpayer money as a vehicle to even greater profit and wealth. Indeed, the success of some of his biggest bets and the profitability of some of his largest investments rely on government largesse and “coddling” with taxpayer money.Ex. during the financial crisis he invested in Goldman-Sacks and was paid off handsomely because of "Too Big to Fail."

    He is corruption on steroids!

    To Chiara2:

    So why didn't you invest in Goldman Sachs like he did and make a ton of money. You rather do nothing and complain and be jealous of other people. If it where not for people like Buffet you probably would not have a job or maybe you are one of the people complaining there are no jobs. If you cant find a job go create your own.

    Chiara...Buffett makes money with his awesome business. Not sure why you're so bitter and jaded over that fact (and misguided on the tax baloney), but you kinda sound like a commie. Get some meds.

    One qualifier - buy great DIVIDEND BEARING COMPANIES and hold them for the long term, otherwise, your initial cash is tied up for good.
