An e-Book: Warren Buffett and Berkshire Hathaway: Corporate Governance and The Sokol Affair

The David Sokol hurricane hit Berkshire Hathaway and Warren Buffett at the end of March 2011.  It wasn’t the first time Buffett and Berkshire Hathaway were in the news for something seemingly sordid.  But coming after almost three years of financial crisis news that often featured Buffett as the benevolent billionaire grandpa coming to the rescue of Goldman Sachs, Wells Fargo, and Bank of America, the Sokol revelations captured everyone’s attention and held it for several months thereafter.

I wrote about the scandal from the beginning, along the way getting several prominent legal experts to contribute their take on what proved to be a strange but, eventually, rather uneventful case. This compilation, available via Amazon, covers the period from April 4 to May 3 when I attended the Berkshire Hathaway Annual Meeting in Omaha, Nebraska. It’s all my writing on the subject from re: The Auditors and my Forbes column, Accounting Watchdog.
