Are you worried about a post-Buffett Berkshire? Don't be.

Warren Buffett is the world's greatest investor, and his reputation is one of the major driving forces for Berkshire Hathaway's ( BRK.B 1.28% ) share prices. But at 82 years old, Berkshire investors have to wonder: What is a post-Buffett Berkshire going to look like? Will there be a market panic when he passes away, and will that panic be justified? In this video, Motley Fool analyst Morgan Housel takes a look at Berkshire share prices and tells us why Mr. Buffett isn't the only thing that makes this a solid place to put your money.

This article represents the opinion of the writer, who may disagree with the “official” recommendation position of a Motley Fool premium advisory service. We’re motley! Questioning an investing thesis – even one of our own – helps us all think critically about investing and make decisions that help us become smarter, happier, and richer.
