With much of the media focused on who will eventually succeed Buffett as CEO of Berkshire Hathaway, the guys also discuss Buffett's role as unofficial booster for American business and the U.S. economy.

The guys also analyze why Buffett went out of his way to praise executives from Bank of America and JP Morgan Chase.
