Nice Work Buffett
Warren Buffett, the world's second richest man, today announced plans to give away 85 per cent of his estimated $US44 billion ($A60.05 billion) wealth to charity.
Most of the donations will go to a foundation run by Bill Gates, the wealthiest man on the planet.
The shares will go to five foundations. But more than 83 per cent of the stock will go to the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, which already has a kitty of about $US30 billion ($A40.94 billion) used to pay for medical research and give educational grants.
Buffett and the Gates' are close friends.
Glad the money won't be financing another "Creationism" museum in the States. Hats off to Buffett.
