"Knowing today what I know, what I would do differently is I just would never have mentioned it to Warren, and just made my own investment and left it alone."

"Knowing today what I know, what I would do differently is I just would never have mentioned it to Warren, and just made my own investment and left it alone. I think that's a disservice to Berkshire, but if that's what people want to do in the future, that's fine. You can't — or at least I don't think you can executives to not invest their own family's capital in a company that Berkshire had no interest, or even knowledge of, and somehow police that. The only thing you can do is just say if you invest your own money, don't ever mention it to anyone at Berkshire. That doesn't make sense to me either, but that's certainly what it sounds like."
