Buf- fet, now age 91, and his long-time business partner Charlie Munger, age 98, are as sharp, quick-witted, and as humorous as ever. eir deep and profound thought processes and broad-based knowledge are inspiring. It was a completely worthy trip; and I personally felt intellectually nourished. eir investment wis- dom is vividly manifested by the indisputably phenomenal results: From 1964–2021, S&P 500 overall gained marks at 30,209%. In com- parison, the Berkshire Hathaway overall gain reached 3,641,613% 1 . e most intriguing part of the event was the Q&A session. e five-hour session offered myriad insights and learning opportunities. Questions from the shareholders (both in per- son and remotely) touched on a wide array of topics and scattered all over the map, from investment to life, from nuclear war to the energy industry, and from public company board practice to cryptocurrency. Below are select excerpts, which I believe are of interest to our industry readers.
