Buffett on 0% interest rates

Warren Buffett emailed this note to the directors of his company, Berkshire Hathaway (BRK.B), Tuesday after he heard that the U.S. Treasury sold $32 billion in 4-week bills at a yield of 0%:

“This should be bullish for Berkshire. With great foresight, I long ago entered the mattress business in a big way through our furniture operation. Now mattresses have become fully competitive as a place to put your money, and sales will soon take off.”

  1. Hi, we have recently launched a blog, The Buffet Post (www.buffetpost.com), which is a general investing/stock magazine concentrating on news/opinion.

    We are looking for writers to join us to help start the site. If you’re interested stocks/finance/business and wouldn’t mind writing the odd article for the site, contact me at: alexander@buffetpost.com

    I like your site and your writing but I think it would be cool if you could join BuffetPost.

    Regards,
    Alex
