Bidding is underway to win a lunch with Warren Buffett. For the past 13 years, Buffett has

Bidding ends Friday, so you still have time. Lunch with Warren won’t come cheap, though.

Ted Weschler paid $5.3 million over two years to win lunch with the man many consider to be the smartest investor in the universe.  A lot of money, but it landed Weschler a job with Buffett’s company, Berkshire Hathaway.
