Forbes 400 Summit: Warren Buffet and Jay-Z (Video + Article)

 Forbes offers this 50 minute video of Steve Forbes interviewing Warren Buffet and Jay-Z together and this article "Jay-Z, Buffet and Forbes on Success and Giving Back." The video is interesting and even funny at times. 

The first Forbes 400 Summit was surreal, amazing and, in the end, moving. We gassed up a Gulfstream 450 one warm September morning and flew one of the most successful recording artists of all time, Jay-Z, to meet the most successful investor of all time, Warren Buffett, on the latter's home turf of Omaha, Neb. The intent was to capture their very different perspectives on success and wealth and to talk about the social obligations that come with each. They ended up finding out they had more in common than anyone would have expected between a 40-year-old rapper from the Brooklyn projects and the 80-year-old sage of compounded returns.
