Warren Buffett’s painful lesson (PostAndCourier)
Warren Buffett, the multi-billionaire who was the darling of Democrats because of his support for higher taxes on the rich, has learned a painful lesson: Good opinion from that quarter lasts only as long as you sing their song. Turns out that, unlike President Barack Obama, the savvy, high-stakes investor known as “The Sage of Omaha” favors a small-to-moderate-sized government. The president’s supporters are not pleased.

If Warren Buffett doesn’t diversify, why should you? (CityWire)
Followers of the most successful investor of all-time, Warren Buffett, may already know his thoughts on diversification. For those of you who do not, his views are quite simple: he doesn’t believe in it. Of course, all of the textbooks and all of the advisers will tell you that he is wrong. Indeed, his mentor, Benjamin Graham, will tell you the same thing. However, maybe Buffett has a point; maybe diversification is at least overrated?

Taxing the rich is not solution to U.S. plight (LehighValleyLive)
Bill Gates and Warren Buffett, the two richest men in America, say the rich are not paying enough in taxes on their income. OK. So let’s have them help the economy and do something about the $1.2 trillion deficit we will have this year. How can we achieve this? Have the government confiscate their combined wealth. There are just two little problems with this solution. First, by taking everything they own they will no longer have any means of making any more money and therefore will never be able to pay taxes again. Secondly, their combined wealth is $112 billion, less than one-tenth of the money needed to close the deficit.
