Warren Buffett Talks Charity and Taxes on ABC's This Week
For those of you who slept in or otherwise missed Warren Buffett on ABC's This Week with Christiane Amanpour Sunday morning, here are some links to the interview. (Amanpour also spoke with Bill and Melinda Gates, Ted Turner, and hedge fund manager Tom Steyer.)
The conversation focuses on Buffett's "Giving Pledge" but also touched on his long-standing argument that the super-rich should be paying more in taxes. It's been getting some extra attention lately as Congress debateswhether and how to extend the Bush tax cuts.
ABC has posted a video of the complete 47-minute program.
Shorter clips are included in a text story headlined "Billionaires Giving Back" on the ABC News site.
There is also a "web extra" video clipin which Buffett walks and talks with Amanpour, explaining why he thinks it is important, and profitable, to be able to communicate clearly and effectively.
