Dear Reader

Brazilian billionaires come in two varieties: the starlet-dating, Ferrari-driving flash of Eike Batista, or the camera-avoiding, early-to-bed sobriety of Jorge Paulo Lemann with his family based again in Switzerland. Mr. Batista, of course, flamed out spectacularly: he lost $34-billion (U.S.) between 2012 to 2013 and declared bankruptcy last year. Paulo Lemann with his Swiss background meanwhile is Brazil’s richest man, and heads a company that acquired Tim Hortons Inc. Billionaire investor Warren Buffett will help finance Burger King's takeover of Tim Hortons. Buffett's Berkshire Hathaway already helped him to to buy Heinz Ketchup. I’m pretty sure it will be a great investment!

Have a nice weekend!
