Buffett: More bullish than the Fed, calls for raising taxes on the ultra rich

Charlie Rose interviewed Warren Buffett earlier this week and the discussion is well worth a view (embedded below). Buffett comments on the GOP presidential candidates (“pathetic” in their recent opposition to raising the debt ceiling), the economy (he sees himself as more bullish on it than the Fed is), and sundry other topics.

Also from the Oracle from Omaha this week – an op-ed in the NYT calling for raising taxes on the ultra-rich, and a new SEC filing shows his recent buys and sells.
