The richest man in America, Warren Buffett, wrote a pro-bailout editorial in The New York Times called Pretty Good for Government Work, and everyone's talking about it. Aside from the piece, in which he says the bailouts saved the economy and not just the big businesses like General Motors, Buffett also said something on CNBC today that incurred a flurry of discussion in the media. The billionaire said:
"That week around Lehman, if government hadn't acted then I'd be having my Thanksgiving dinner at McDonald's instead of a big turkey dinner at my daughter's."
I wonder what it is about McDonald's and its allure to the uber wealthy. McDonald's sounds a little bit extreme, and I'm sure there are other ways to cut costs on turkey day. I'm asking: do you have any savvy tips for Thanksgiving dinners?
