Reader comment on: Obama Profiles Buffett
Submitted by Ed Thompson (United States), Apr 18, 2012 21:09
Note that, while Obama acknowledges Buffett's financial acumen, he lauds Buffett for giving his money away. Give a man a fish, as the saying goes, and he'll be hungry tomorrow. It solves nothing in the long run. Imagine the good that Buffett would do if he kept his money and invested it, parlaying it for decades to come, creating jobs and wealth in many areas of the globe. But that's a concept that cannot be understood by advocates of, "From each according to his ability, to each according to his need."
