Warren Buffet Is Not the Hero You Think He Is

Earlier this week, an announcement was made that the Leamington Heinz plant will be shutting its doors. To say that this plant is the pillar of Leamington is an understatement. It was announced that Heinz would be purchased by Berkshire Hathaway -- Warren Buffet's company. As the second richest man in the world, he urges his fellow one percenters to give the vast majority of their wealth away. But, while he openly donates money and berates others for their lack of action, he is also responsible for the quiet destruction of an entire community.
