I am quoted in this Bloomberg article on Berkshire Hathaway’s investment in MasterCard – May 17, 2011:

“The size of the investment suggests that the MasterCard stake was picked by Combs, said David Kass, a professor at the University of Maryland’s Robert H. Smith School of Business, who has accompanied students to meet Buffett in Omaha.”

“Warren Buffett, when he makes an investment, it would typically be hundreds of millions of dollars and up,” Kass said.

I am quoted in this article:

“How much does Warren Buffett make in a year?

His Berkshire salary has been stuck at $100,000 a year for decades, but recently he told a student group that his average tax rate is 16 percent on $16 million in income, according to notes posted on the Internet by University of Maryland finance professors David Kass and Sarah Kroncke.”
