Tuesday, November 4, 2014 | 6:30-8:30 pm
The Jack Morton Auditorium 
805 21st Street, NW
Washington, DC 20052

What will happen to Berkshire Hathaway when Warren Buffett is no longer around? In his new book, Berkshire Beyond Buffett: The Enduring Value of Values, Professor Lawrence A. Cunningham draws a comprehensive portrait of the conglomerate's distinct culture to argue that Berkshire will not only survive, but thrive. Join us for a discussion of this book that recounts the histories and business model of each Berkshire subsidiary to unearth the values that unite them and assure their indefinite prosperity. There will be a Q&A session and book signing.

This event is cosponsored by the George Washington University Law School, the Center for Law, Economics & Finance, the George Washington University School of Business, and the GW Ramsey Student Investment Fund.
