A capitalistic sermon
Once a year Berkshire Hathaway holds a meeting in Omaha/Nebraska, all stockholders are invited to attend the event that has gradually become the informal summit of main street world capitalism. Joining Berkshire Hathaway is not like joining any other investment company; by giving your money to Buffett, one becomes a member of Berkshire Hathaway’s church, it is like entering a covenant. By giving your money to Buffett you become part of the faith of capitalism, the belief that money can buy you happiness and Buffett is the designated driver who stirs the money-boat to the promised land, the land of milk and honey and lots of cash.
The show is a sermon given by Buffett himself as the high priest of capitalism. Buffett is the Pope but it is all just one big happy family.
