September 20, 2013 – Business magnate and investor Warren Buffett sat down with Bank of America CEO Brian Moynihan at Georgetown yesterday to talk about the importance of philanthropy and share his thoughts on the current economic climate.
“Originally my wife and I had planned when we were in our twenties that when we had everything we needed, we would give the rest to society,” Buffett, chair and CEO of Berkshire Hathaway, told an audience of more than 700 Georgetown students, faculty, staff and business leaders.
Buffett is ranked No. 4 on Forbes magazine’s list of top billionaires in the world and No. 2 in the United States. In 2006, he made a commitment to gradually give away all of his Berkshire Hathaway stock to philanthropic foundations.
