Invest from a business persepctive… It is isn’t good business, then it predominately isn’t endorsed here… as a general rule.
WB is an anomoly to the business… he has written the play book on how to do things… but most folks can’t discipline themselves to the strict line of rigors that WB rules himself by… He is all about the “Cause”, and little about the “Personal Benefit” of the Cause. He can and does subordinate his own gratification to the Cause… when then has become his Gratification.
Now that I have drifted sompletely off topic, (for the CRE board), I’ll close by saying that most folks couldn’t assimilate to WB, but they can come here, rub elbows and learn and equally good disciplined investment approach, no matter that it doesn’t involve WB…
Keep in mind this… WB’s rate of return for 2005, overall was, - .9%… that is MINUS 9/10th of 1 %… on his invested assets.
