Fron an editorial in the Chicago Tribune:  “With federal budget deficits running wild, investors are growing uneasy at the idea of lending money to an institution that seems unable to stop spending beyond its means. Last month, something extraordinary happened: Two-year bonds offered by Berkshire Hathaway Inc. commanded lower yields than those offered by the U.S. government. As put it, ‘The bond market is saying that it’s safer to lend to Warren Buffett than Barack Obama’.”
