Warren Buffet, Melinda and Bill Gates Fundation


沃倫•巴菲特(Warren Buffett)
伯克希爾哈撒韋公司(Berkshire Hathaway)董事長兼首席執行官
作為當世最成功的投資人,他的名聲早已不可撼動。最近這十年,巴菲特將更多的時間花在塑造一個政治家、慈善家和不知疲倦的美國經濟啦啦隊長的形象。不管是經常性的電視露面,還是在家鄉內布拉斯加舉辦年會時吸引的創紀錄的參與人群,抑或是向比爾梅林達•蓋茨基金會(Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation)捐款310億美元的頭條新聞,全世界都比以往更多地聽到和看到這位“奧馬哈聖賢”(Sage of Omaha)的事蹟。

當經濟衰退影響到巴菲特的眾多業務時——管理著他各項投資的伯克希爾哈撒韋公司在2008年經歷了巴菲特投資生涯中里最糟糕的年度——這位億萬富翁卻以他所進行過的幾樁最大、最冒險的交易為這十年畫上了句號。

The billionaire says it would have cut his most-recent tax bill by more than 17%.

He says it would be a handout to wealthy people like him.

In 2010, Bill and Melinda Gates joined Warren Buffett in creating “The Giving Pledge,” an effort to encourage America’s wealthiest families to donate the majority of their wealth to philanthropic causes and charities.
Today more than 125 families and individuals have signed the pledge.www.givingpledge.orgBill & Melinda Gates Foundation 的相片。


In a 2006 letter to Bill and Melinda about their work “improving the lives of millions of fellow humans who have not been as lucky as the three of us,” Warren Buffett pledges a lifetime gift worth more than $30 billion to “carry on this work.” Read the letter here: http://gates.ly/1QYA3LI
The gift doubled the foundation’s spending and enabled the expansion of our work beyond health and into other areas, such as agriculture.

Marking Berkshire's 50th anniversary this weekend. I've always admired Warren's wisdom in business but also more broadly in life. Honored to count him as a friend and collaborator.
