Among the topics expected to be covered in the interview:
- InBev's bid for Anheuser-Busch (Buffett has a big BUD stake)
- The muni-bond business in the wake of downgrades for MBIA and AMBAC
- Buffett's support of Barack Obama's candidacy (he'll be the attraction at a pair of Obama fund-raisers next week)
- The state of the economy as the Federal Reserve prepares to announce its latest decision on interest rates.
Buffett will be in New York to host his own "Power Lunch" with the high bidders in last year's 'Lunch with Warren' charity auction.
Investors Mohnish Pabrai and Guy Spier paid $650,100 for the invite. The money goes to San Francisco's Glide Foundation. Buffett will also talk to Becky about Glide and his support of their mission to help the poor and homeless.
This year's bidding for the next meal with Buffett is now underway. The current high bid is just over $77,000, but if the past is any guide, the winner will be paying much more than that. The auction comes to a close Friday night.
