Buffett Lunch: Canadian Firm Salida Capital Pays $1.68 Million To Eat With Warren

Buffett Lunch: Canadian Firm Salida Capital Pays $1.68 Million To Eat With Warren

“Stimulus is a joke of a concept; it doesn't end up with real economic growth in the long
tem. Even the New Deal failed to increase private investment. It wasn't until 1941 that
domestic private investment reached 1929 levels. The fact that the first stimulus has failed
to stop the bleeding yet isn't surprising. Our government deficit for the year which is over
20% of GDP (when the omnibus bill, first stimulus, bailouts, and on-budget deficit are
summed) is unsustainable and something's gotta give, whether it be the lenders or the
interest rates.

“By first stimulus, you mean the one Bush passed last year? Remember getting the check?
Or do you mean the TARP program that was pushed by Bush and Paulsen?
Or the first stimulus that Bush gave in his first term?
Or his bailout of the airline industry?
Or the nationalization of airport security?

Your name should really be partisanfromthepast instead...”

“The recovery is a forest. People have let their credit cards go, and don"t have mortgage

payments it looks as if we are spending more and people have disposable incomes again.

Actually, savings are getting drained and there are no new jobs. We are in the calm before

the storm. People are spending what every little cash they have left on eating out and

shopping for smaller ticket items. This will come to an end in 6 months. There are no new

jobs. Can you hear the quiet in America?
