Thank you. I was hoping to find the full interview but only found various short excerpts earlier on!

Interesting comments for me were..

The economy is growing slightly faster than in previous years.
Charlie and Warren have only met once in the last 2 years.
Warren seems to like Apple a lot.
Warren also seems to think that USG should look at a "strategic alternative" - in other words, he does not like the business in the long-term, he would be happy to be bought out.

I believe it was something more like 2-3 times per year.  We know they have been together at least once a year because of the annual meeting.  And it turns out there is also one off-site directors meeting each year.

Apologies, yes, twice in the last year.
