Buffett says government is doing the right things
By JOSH FUNK
http://seattletimes.nwsource.com/html/businesstechnolog...

Billionaire Warren Buffett said Saturday that the U.S. government is taking the correct actions to help the economy recover.

Buffett spoke briefly before the opening of the annual meeting for his Berkshire Hathaway Inc., expected to draw an audience of roughly 35,000 people.

"The government is doing the right things," Buffett said. "They're acting in a countercyclical manner."

But Buffett said he can't predict how quickly the economy and the markets will improve. He said last fall that the U.S. faced an "economic Pearl Harbor."
