The World’s Greatest Money Maker: Warren Buffett

Warren Buffett is the greatest investor of all time. His decisions about buying shares and companies have beaten the stock market year after year and made him the richest person in the world – thought to be worth 37 billion dollars.

Yet Buffett lives modestly in his native Omaha, in America’s mid-West, and runs his 150 billion dollar business with a staff of just twenty. Evan Davis meets him to find out about his unique investment strategy and his eccentric lifestyle. Evan talks to Buffett’s family, friends and colleagues about the man they call the Sage of Omaha, and Buffett’s friend Bill Gates praises his philosophy of life.

As the greed of the super-wealthy is widely criticised in the current financial crisis, Davis asks whether Warren Buffett is the acceptable face of the filthy rich.

  1. Intriguing documentary. Would love to meet him and pick his brain. These are the kind of documentaries that inspire you to self develop every day and become a success in your given passion. One can only aspire to do it with as much class and humility as Warren. Great guy! Keep them coming DH

  2. As much as I like Buffett and his successes, he is nowhere near the world’s greatest money maker as he is third on the list for worlds wealthiest people!

    To be absolutely correct Carlos Slim Helu Is the world’s greatest money maker with a net worth $69 Billion as compared to Warren Buffetts $44 Billion dollar net worth. And second on the list is Bill Gates with a net worth of $61 Billion dollars.

    And that’s just with 1 and a half minutes of research with Google. Wonder what the creator did with all his research time…

    Epic fail…

  3. Looking at the idolatry bestowed upon these arch criminals, the people get what the people deserve. There’s no special ‘gift’ or genius involved in a well worn strategy deployed over thousands of years yielding the same results. Technology has of course, made all the difference to the speed and reach of power and control.

  4. Warren Buffett is a crony!
