One Hell Of A Tithe.

So just found this on MSN….

Bill Gates has been the richest American on the Forbes 400 list for 15 years. But in this financial crisis, Warren Buffett has zoomed ahead to knock Gates off his perch.

Buffett got $8 billion richer from Aug. 29 to Oct. 1, and now has a $58 billion net worth, according to Forbes. Let’s put that in perspective. In the month of September, when the financial world was going down the tubes, Buffett got $242 million richer every day. How is that even possible?

Gates’ net worth declined by $1.5 billion over the 33-day period to $55.5 billion.

At this point I’m trying to fathom what I would do with $242 million dollars every day….

  1. Seriously. I dont know what will come of this election we have going right now. its all left a bitter taste in my mouth honestly. But I know there is a chance that Buffet may end up as Secretary of Treasury at the end of it all. If that were to happen I think we could expect to see our economy taking a complete 180.

  2. yuck. $242 million a day??? Ugh, the imbalanced spread of wealth in this world makes me mad.
