While I hold Warren Buffett in high esteem, I think that his general deification tends to be a bit much. But even so, this list of his investment criteria is simple, more than a bit obvious, and terrific. It’s a classic back to basics review. I suggest you read it. It even made The New Yorker‘s The Hundred Best Lists of All Time at #24. It was behind the periodic table, the Bill of Rights and the Ten Commandments though.
