    Warren Buffet: The Greatest Investor and also a Socialist

    Warren Buffet is without any doubt the greatest investor of all, and he happens to be of great humility and a great charity contributor, a rarity for someone that rich. He also happen to think that the extremely rich should be taxed for "using" society resources. A very progressive idea. He even converted evil Bill Gates to become more involved in charitable work with his immense fortune, and now Bill Gates is the biggest charity contributor. Another example showing that being an achiever is also compatible with being a progressive.

    This is an interview he gave on the BBC about the recent crisis,

    He is indeed. Unlike so many of the richest in the world, he hasn't fallen victim to conspicuous consumption. Here is his house.

    he does have a private jet though, he says it's more about being useful than anything else
