The Berkshire Hathaway Annual Shareholder Meeting took place on Saturday, May 1, featuring Warren Buffett and Charlie Munger. In this episode, Phil and Danielle discuss some of the major highlights from the meeting.

Munger took an aim at bitcoin and cryptocurrencies during the conglomerate’s annual meeting on Saturday, stating “I think the whole damn development is disgusting and contrary to the interests of civilization.”

Buffett and Munger also discussed potential tax hikes from the Biden administration, and expressed not being concerned about them. Buffett mentioned that some companies try to fear-monger by saying the tax rates will be passed through to customers.

“It's corporate fiction when they put out statements about the fact that it will be terrible for all of you people,” Buffett said.

Buffett also stated that there is a lot more to investing than picking a budding or trending industry. Buffett warned newbie investors, and Phil and Danielle have always agreed with this take on smart investing.
