"If we did run into problems in markets, I think he would actually be the best person you could have in the job," Buffett said, according to a transcript of an interview that was scheduled to air Monday on PBS. "World leaders would have confidence in him."
Let's hope Obama won't listen to Buffett this time around. We need a break from regulators and policymakers who think Wall Street's interests come ahead of those of everyone else. It seems doubtful we'll get one, however.
