Lunch With Buffett Draws Less Interest Than Last Year
Another sign of the recession: So far, bids for Warren Buffett's annual lunch-with-Warren-for-charity are up to "only" $600,000 as bidding concludes at midnight tonight on eBay.
Last year, the winning bidder, hedge fund manager Zhao Danyang, paid $2.1 million to share a Diet Coke with Buffett. Zhao attributes his fund's strong performance over the past several years to tactics he's learned from Buffett.
Super-investor Buffett, chairman of Berkshire Hathaway and a director of The Washington Post Co., is the world's richest person, according to Forbes.
