ABC assigned Dan Harris (subscription required) to file a free Help Wanted ad on behalf of Berkshire Hathaway. Billionaire Warren Buffett is looking for a successor and he plans to "hire several people on a trial basis" giving them each $1bn to manage. The 700 applications Buffett has received so far include a four-year-old who impressed his father with his bedtime negotiating skills and a practitioner of yoga who points out that "mastery of your emotions" improves one's investing strategy. Harris quoted Buffett: "Anyone can manage $1bn. I need someone to manage $100bn."
