      Class Warfare

      “Through the tax code, there has been class warfare waged, and my class has won. It’s been a rout.”

      Warren Buffett, US Billionaire (2011).

      Legendary financial manager Warren Buffett is one of the richest people in the world, with an estimated fortune of US$73 billion in 2014. But most of his income is generated by investments that are taxed at preferential rates. He disclosed that in 2006 he paid a lower average rate of personal income tax (17.7 percent) than his secretary (who paid 30 percent on a salary of about US$60,000). To his credit, he called for changes in the tax code that would impose minimum taxes on rich investors.

This is a massive tome that l bought some years ago but never got to reading until lock-down. But glad I did. I was very familiar with Buffett's investment philosophy, but not how it evolved from the extreme 'cigar butt' value strategy of Ben Graham to the more eclectic definition of value of Charlie Munger. Indeed, along with his father Howard, they emerge as two of the major influences on his life.
From an early age, Buffett was exfremely hard working, even at the expense of family life, but not interested in the ostentation of wealth. As with his bridge playing obsession, it is more an intellectual exercise. Among the many anecdotes, he is quoted as saying he had never met a trophy wife who did not look more like the booby prize! He was socially gauche from an early age, struggling to impress girls. In later life he became more confident, moving in the top social circle, and becoming a companion of Kay Graham of the Washington Post. But his dress sense did not improve!
There are surprising details about his early delinquent behaviour, involving shoplifting and slot machine business scams.
Despite the avuncular imagine Buffett had problems dealing with emotional issues; the relationship with his wife, her illness, and the death of his father. Most surprising was his attitude to his two adopted grandchildren. He announced to the family that he did not recognise them as his family, and excluded them from family endowments.
In the latter years a reluctant meeting with Bill Gates leads to a very close friendship, probably closer than with his two sons.
Despjte the occasional clunky American prose, Alice Schroeder emerges a worthy Boswell to Buffett's Johnson. Thoroughly recommended to anyone interested in what lies behind the mask of public figures and public affairs. ( )

DNF. I made it to past halfway through and found I just didn't have enough interest to finish. Too long, too many irrelevant anecdotes, too much that I just didn't care to hear about. I tried, but it wasn't for me. ( )

Detailed, valuable and inspiring biography of Warren Buffett. I truly like the principles and approach of Warren Buffett and am very happy to follow his recommendations. His description of how his participation in a Dale Carnegie course turned out one of the most valuable things in his life inspired me to finally study Dale Carnegie myself. One of the things I was impressed most was Buffett’s approach to philanthropy. His description of his friendship with Bill Gates inspired me to study Bill Gates’ approach to philanthropy as well, which turned out to be very inspiring and valuable as well. ( )

I struggled through the first 100+ pages before giving up. I could not persuade myself that it was reading any further about a small-time juvenile delinquent who was (or at least represented as being) so shallow that his sole goal in life was to make money. Edifying this book was not (at least the part that I managed to read). ( )

It is the winter of Warren's ninth year. Outside in the yard, he and his little sister, Bertie, are playing in the snow

Warren is catching snowflakes, One at a time at first. Then he is scooping them up by handfuls. He starts to pack them into a ball. Slowly it begins to roll. He gives it a push, and it picks up more snow. He pushes the snowball across the lawn, piling snow on snow. Soon he reaches the edge of the yard. After a moment of hesitation, he heads off, rolling the snowball through the neighborhood.

And from there, Warren continues onward, casting his eye on a whole world full of snow.
