    He was geek in school, he never graduated, he built up a computer empire that made him a lot of money, he married and now is a humanitarian which means he has a lot of money and needs to get a tax write off and this is the best way to do it.

    Does he care about the causes he gives to? I dunno he never seemed to do that until he got married it might his wife steering him into that direction or his accountant.

    He has a good number of money - in money. it rather is the biggest-word, right here. money... I had executed somewhat study till now i heard with reference to the incredible donation, and that i found out that Buffett became attempting to get his money out of the U.S. forex. In different words, he possibly thinks that the greenback is going to devaluate, making his money valueless (style of), so he needs to furnish away and sell all of his earnings replace for issues which will the two carry their fee or upward push in fee. i assume he concept "properly, I actual have this hunk of money and that i choose to spend as a good number of it as i will, so why no longer supply it to somebody else?" some years in the past, i think of, he invested thousands and thousands in some constructive metallic, making the fee upward push from somewhat over 4 money to seven something. He on my own did that. distinctly cool, in case you question me. besides, that's what i actual think of, whether it ought to sound somewhat a techniques-fetched.
