In this episode, we summarize some of Warren’s thoughts from the Berkshire Hathaway meeting. We dive further into Facebook and reasons why they might be poised to thrive in upcoming years. We also talk a bit about what big-box retail bankruptcies would mean to a grocery-anchored REIT. Finally, we riff on possible answers to Patrick Collison’s question, "Looking back from 2040, what's the largest CapEx-heavy new company that will be founded in 2020-2025?" Let us know your thoughts in the group. https://www.facebook.com/groups/ReformedMillennials/
