No, Google’s new “Alphabet” structure is really nothing like Berkshire Hathaway - Quartz
Page pledges to “rigorously handle capital allocation and work to make sure each business is executing well.” That would be very Buffett-like, but the types of businesses Alphabet has under its umbrella definitely aren’t. They’re speculative money losers with no clear future, as opposed to Berkshire’s signature cash generators. [...] Unlike Berkshire, Google doesn’t have clearly and publicly articulated criteria for acquisitions, and little experience (and possibly interest) in buying and integrating big, mature, money-making businesses. One of Berkshire’s major advantages is that it manages to pay a lower price for businesses as it offers prestige, a long-term home, and a history of giving management autonomy. Alphabet doesn’t yet offer that. Berkshire headquarters and subsidiaries are also marked by an obsession with frugality, while Google is known for its free cafeteria and extravagantly designed headquarters. But there’s hope its new CFO is bringing some discipline.

Buffett Says European Bank(s) Have Asked Him For Money | ZeroHedge
Berkshire Hathaway Inc.'s Warren Buffett, who has sold most of his company's holdings of European sovereign debt, said his firm isn't interested in helping to bail out lenders on the continent.

"They need capital in their banks, in many of their banks," Buffett, Berkshire's chairman and chief executive officer, told Bloomberg Television's Betty Liu on "In the Loop" today. "We would not be a good prospect," he said in an interview from the New York Stock Exchange. He's received "very, very few" calls about putting capital into European banks. "Not quite none at all," he said, declining to name any institutions."

“I think it’s a real problem of society but it will not be hurt in the least.  The top 400 in taxpayers in 2009 averaged $227 million of income per person.  The economy will not be hurt at all by taxing those who paid low rates at a higher rate.
