Straight from the horse’s mouth:
What’s the real problem with the U.S. economy? Billionaire investor Warren Buffett thinks it’s that rich people are benefiting too much.
“This has been a prosperity that’s been disproportionately rewarding to the people on top,” Buffett said in an interview Tuesday with PBS Newshour’s Judy Woodruff.
Buffett, the 86-year-old founder and CEO of Berkshire Hathaway Inc. BRK.A, +0.48% , is the world’s second-richest man, according to Forbes’ billionaires list, with a net worth of about $76 billion.
