World’s 2nd Richest Man Hires Richest Man As His Philanthropic Advisor!

You may have heard today that Warren Buffett is giving away his billions to Bill Gates’s Foundation to give away. It amounts to about 3 billion a year at the current stock price which is pretty impressive. It looks like charitable giving is now back in style!

What I thought was truly impressive is that Buffett only draws a salary of $100,000 which is probably amongst the least of all publicly traded companies in the US. His wealth comes from his 38% ownership in Berkshire Hathaway and the money he’s been investing on his own which has probably done better than the approx 30% return that Berkshire has seen. So essentially he gets a performance incentive for managing the companies money!
