Warren Buffet Has Huge War Chest

In investing, you account size really matters - CW8888

When Warren Buffet decided to go into investing with partnership model; he already a millionaire!

What can we learn from Buffet on investing?


  1. And how much about 1987/88 $180,000.00 worth in today dollars?

    1. Hi Temperament,

      Short answer is $305,400/-

      Long answer:
      From Singstat, 1987 CPI is 58.69 while 2017 CPI is 99.5, giving an inflation CAGR of 1.72% per annum over 31 years. (Must be the cheap stuff from China & globalization)

      2018 full CPI not known yet, but from the figures as of Oct 2018, so far is much lower than the average. CPI went from 99.5 to 99.9 ..... 0.4% increase.

      S'pore CPI 1987-2017

      Notice the steep rise from 2008-2013 ... people were not happy with govt then! :)

      If you can super-impose the median wage increase onto the CPI graph, you can easily predict the incumbent's performance during elections Hohoho!
