Buffett's Shopping Spree Goes Global

Even in the initial aftermath, the investor expressed confidence in the nation's ability to bounce back. In my piece, "Buffett Keen on Japan" , I explained how Buffett found the post-disaster Japanese downturn to be an attractive investing opportunity. The billionaire's remarks mimic those he presented in his now-famous financial-crisis-era New York Times op-ed piece, "Buy America. I Am."

Economic crises are not dissuading the investor, either. In an interview with CNBC this week, the investor explained that while he is avoiding European debt at this time, there are a handful of companies in the troubled region he has on the radar.

Whether Warren Buffett decides to fire his elephant gun here in the U.S. or somewhere abroad, what has becoming increasingly clear in recent days is that, despite looming headwinds and soured sentiment, the world famous investor sees the current market environment as an attractive buying opportunity. Looking ahead, it will be exciting to see where he heads next.

Has Buffett's recent spending spree impacted your own views on the global marketplace? Feel free to leave a comment in space below.
