Also, when I think of the term maximizing shareholder value I think of Icahn...esque buy and pillage routine, that destroys on going concerns. So I agree that is not what BRK sees as it mission.

Now the mission seems to buy up everything it can, especially if someone else does the staff cutting.

I do know what it is like to be cut and I also know what it is like to not be cut and end up with ridiculous amounts of work and stress.

Hope 3G at least provides good support for those who will surely loose their jobs.

Not fun.
