Just an average guy?

Its Warren Buffett This is an unusual post but one I hope you will enjoy all the same. We live in a society that is driven by consumerism. Many of us own expensive cars, mobile phones, DVD players and other gadgets (that are often so cheap to make that if they break we can just throw them away and buy new ones with little concern for the environment). And it’s no surprise that the super rich take this consumerism a step further with mansions, yachts, sports cars and other symbols of extravagance. So if I told you that one of the richest men on the planet lives modestly in an ordinary American suburban house, drives a good used car and goes to work each day on the 14th floor of an office block, would you stand up and take notice? Well I certainly did. This man is Warren Buffett. He runs a company called Berkshire Hathaway, which is worth $150 billion.
