Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
The emerging CW among the TeaBaggers, Libertarians, and all that ilk is Mr. Buffet, who grew a couple of million dollar textile company into a $50 billion conglomerate, "doesn't know anything about investing."

Therefore, doesn't know anything about economics.

Funny thing is, they're actually mostly right that Mr. Buffet does not know anything about investing. Because what he does very well is not investment but speculation.

But I suppose that distinction would sail way over their heads.
