We’re Off to See the Oracle, the Awesome Oracle of Omaha - Wharton Journal - News: "On his views on philanthropy, Mr. Buffett said that giving away his money was really the best use for it. He joked that he could probably put Egypt out of business if he were to build a tomb for himself, but he wanted to create as much impact as possible per dollar used. That was why he had given away most of his money to the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. He also talked about his work along with the Gates family to convince other billionaires to pledge away at least half their money to charity. The pledges can be looked up on givingpledge.org."
