ABSTRACT
The article presents information on the growth of business by Berkshire Hathaway Inc. under the chairmanship of Warren Buffett. The market will have to wait until Berkshire Hathaway files its second-quarter interim report before a question hotly debated by currency traders from Wall Street. Berkshire Chairman Warren Buffett, one of the most outspoken U.S. dollar bears cut his 21.8 billion dollars short dollar position. Berkshire Hathaway investors will also find out whether profits on this much-ballyhooed dollar play have been squeezed in the face of a sinking euro. When Buffett ventured into the foreign exchange business in 2002, his textbook analysis of irresponsible U.S. trade policy and trade deficits the rationale behind his short U.S. dollar position was well-received by the general public.
