Which leads me to a question I've never seen asked of Mr. Buffett. Given what he has said repeatedly about the burden of capital and the opportunities in obscure small companies, if he were a young investor with less than $5 million today, would he invest anything meaningful (or anything at all) in a company of the size and scope of Berkshire Hathaway? I don't think he would. It would be interesting to hear.

I think a good follow up question would be to ask him if he was leaving the country for 20 years and would be forced to leave his family's entire net worth in just a single company, which one would he choose at today's prices?
