Yeah. That’s billion with a “B”.
Warren Buffett, the second richest man in the world, announced that he is giving about $30 billion to the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. (You know, the charitable foundation created by the richest man in the world.) Buffett is also giving about $7 billion to the charitable foundations of his wife and kids.
For those counting along at home, this leaves about $7 billion for those incidental expenses required as Warren winds his way through his senior years.
I don’t really know what else to say. I just hope to do the same thing some day. I had better get started.
