Howard Warren Buffett Quote: It will be good for us in the long run, and I mean there are six and a half billion people in this world. And it's great for 300 million to keep enjoying more and more property, but I think it's terrific if the remainder do. And I think if they can learn something from us in terms of our system, and I think they have, they are learning more about how to unleash the potential of their citizenry to turn out more goods and services that their citizens want or that we want, I think that's terrific.

And so I think that actually people in my situation should be paying more tax. I think the rest of the country should be paying less.

You have what they call social tools, and, you know, you're going to feel like an idiot if you didn't do it, because the house cost more.
