These are the important questions that are now being asked about Bitcoin, in the global financial community. This interesting article provides an insight into the future possibilities surrounding Bitcoin. Read on to find out more. (Safe Haven)

Mr. Buffett the teacher
The Oracle of Omaha has never written any book on investment. Yet his penchant for teaching has always been very strong. And it is hardly any surprise that he is widely regarded as the one of the greatest teachers of value investing. While his shareholder letters and annual Berkshire Hathaway meetings are very popular, not many may know that Warren Buffett started his career as an investor in Omaha also teaching adult education courses at Omaha University for a decade until 1962. Here is a fantastic documentary on this legendary investor which features among other interesting things, recently uncovered historical TV news footage of Buffett in 1962. We highly recommend you watch this video... (Value Walk)

He in fact has even confirmed "beyond doubt" that asset bubbles are brewing in China. Read on to find out what is it about the Chinese economy that has forced Greenspan to become an alarmist.
