Warren Buffett believes women will save the American economy.  The 82 year old billionaire tells the BBC he is optimistic the United States will survive the fiscal cliff, and that the economy will thrive because women’s talents are finally being utilized.  Buffett explained that “fifty percent of the talent in the U.S. has been pushed off in the corner for almost 2-hundred years.  Now that we’re starting to use 100 percent of our talent, it makes me very optimistic.”  Buffett added that the U.S. still has a ways to go in reaching gender equality, but he says he’s seen great gains since he was a boy with two sisters in the 1930’s.  He says back then, “the hope was they would marry well.  The hope with me was that I would fulfill my potential, whatever it might be.”
