Warren Buffett – The World’s Greatest Money Maker - Video

If you invest in the stock market you’re almost 100% certain to have heard of Warren Buffett. Indeed, you’ve probably read books about him, or you might have read his annual shareholder letter, or even been to the spectacle that is the Berkshire Hathaway annual shareholders meeting.

Now’s your chance to watch an interesting documentary that offers an intimate look at the life of Warren Buffett. The documentary offers an eye opening view of how he runs the company (complete with a tour of his office), the annual shareholders meeting of Berkshire Hathaway, and a peak at his many eccentricities.

Of course the film also reviews how he made his money, how he operates, how he came to operate in the way he does, and how he thinks about his wealth which is in the tens of billions of dollars.


Quote for the day

" In trading, as in life, you need a plan. This plan includes not only the micro - a strategy for each and every trade you make - but also the macro - meaning why you trade, how you intend to reach that goal (your means to desired end), and what you'll do as an alternative if that doesn't work out." -  Curtis Faith
