When you consume at least three books a day in a lifetime of 85 years, you tend to know a lot. But one thing that’s got Warren Buffett stumped is how to prevent terrorists from triggering a nuclear explosion – a disaster which he believes is not a matter of if, but when.

He told shareholders at the 2016 Berkshire AGM that for over half a century he has been contributing to groups that are concerned with the danger.

He went into detail why he feels this way during the AGM – other topics covered in this segment include the share buybacks and how the big economic picture should affect investment decisions. – Alec Hogg
