Buffett seems to have a cold

Buffett seems very high on the partnership Jorge Paulo Lemann of 3G capital. He said that he wants to do more deals and he loves the execution of these folks. Seems like a long term partnership.

From Wikipedia..

Jorge Paulo Lemann (born August 26, 1939, in Rio de Janeiro).[4] He is ranked as the 37th richest person in the world by Bloomberg Billionaire Index, with an estimated net worth of US$18.9 billion as of November 2012

Lemann was born to Swiss immigrants. He received his Bachelors degree from Harvard University in Economics in 1961. From 1961 to 1962 he worked as trainee at Credit Suisse.

In 1971 he and three partners founded the Brazilian investment banking firm Banco Garantia. Undaunted by a horrific market crash that came only weeks later, Lemann was eventually able to build Garantia into one of the country's most prestigious and innovative investment banks, described in Forbes as "a Brazilian version of Goldman Sachs."
