It's the second episode of the podcast 2.0 with my new co-host, David Leary!
We chat about Warren Buffet's "Accounting Nightmare." New accounting rules changes for 2018 require investments to be reported at fair value, resulting in an unusual net loss for Berkshire Hathaway. Buffet is a long term investor, so naturally he isn't a fan of including unrealized gains and losses in net income.
Also, David shares a really cool chart from Financial Samurai showing the net worth composition of people by net worth tier. It's fascinating how much wealth at the top end comes from business interests. Want to get rich? Own a business! Or two. Or more.
