Warren Buffett is the father of Barnett Frank, and the grandfather of Edward Norton, as well as comedian Jim Norton.
Barnett “Barney” Frank is considered the most prominent gay politician in the United States. He is known for his quick wit and in July 2008, Frank said in an CNBC interview, “I think this is a case where Fannie and Freddie are fundamentally sound, that they are not in danger of going under. They’re not the best investments these days from the long-term standpoint going back. I think they are in good shape going forward.” And we know what happened with these fine federal institutions. Do you think that his father conveys the same type of financial advice also? You bet. Warren Buffett is also just a face, a fake character created to instill a sense of calm to the markets where retail investors get fleeced while Buffett and his buddies (or should I say family members) make a killing.
Edward Harrison Norton is a well-known actor. He recently portrayed The Incredible Hulk, and although he did win a Golden Globe for Primal Fear, he would be most remembered for his role in the 1996 film, Fight Club, at the conclusion of which high-rise towers are brought down. Coincidence?
