Warren Buffett Report on IDS Corporation?
« on: November 27, 2017, 05:11:22 PM »
Buffett wrote in his 1994 letter that he wrote a report on IDS Corporation. Snowball also mentions that Buffett wrote a report on it in the Commercial & Financial Chronicle in the early 1950's - has anyone ever seen this report and/or know where to get it?

Could someone familiar with the St. Louis Fed website post a link to the specific report? Would be appreciated...

Unrelated, there's some good stuff published with Buffett as an author:

Here are all the CFC articles archived, you can dig thru these:

Thanks guys, I've read through those and wasn't able to find it. I wonder if Ms. Schroeder was mistaken in her book.

(EDIT -- I see, reading more carefully, that you're probably not looking for this FCIC interview...I'll leave it up in case someone else finds it of use.  Apologies)

http://fcic.law.stanford.edu/interviews/view/19

Is this what you're looking for? 

There also is (or at least used to be) a transcript that I got from Santangelsreview.com 

I might have found the that transcript on this site, so you might try searching this board if you can't find with a search engine.
