Does Warren Buffett Deserve His Outsider Rep?

Print comment Post Comments
Writing about Warren Buffett's reputation as an outsider, NY Magazine notes that "While the soon-to-be octogenarian still cracks a corny joke or two while running Berkshire Hathaway, out of far-off, unsullied Omaha, he’s a citizen of Wall Street at heart." Indeed. After all, Buffett's $5 billion investment in Goldman Sachs in September 2008 was the act of an ultimate insider. "In some ways, he might be even more extreme, because his outsize reputation means he often gets a free pass on behavior that others get called out on."
