    Default Just Exactly What Is The difference...

    ...between Bain Capital and Berkshire Hathaway? Oh, I know. Warren Buffet good. Whats to pay more taxes but they won't let him. Mitt Romney evil. A tax cheat that the IRS can't seem to get the goods on.

    Warren Buffet is not running for President.
    All success belongs to the dog, all failure to the trainer.

    No, but he is running BH while backing the guy who is running for POTUS. Perhaps to benefit his Burlington Northern Holdings which will transport oil in lieu of using pipeline.

    You will not get an answer for your question from a liberal. The difference is, there isn't a difference. Only the media will make it a difference. Both companies make a lot of money. Both companies employ a ton of people, both companies pay a large amount of taxes. The only difference is one was run by a man in politics (Romney), the other one owns the man that holds the highest political office

    Big difference in the methodology. Brookshire buys companies they believe will be long-term good holds...while Bain has a short term plan. Bain looks to find value created by inefficiencies while Brookshire like to create value by supporting its portfolio companies. Big difference...I have done business with both. I like the Brookshire types because they do not over-leverage the company to make their equity go further...while the Bain types leverage up and if they break to the leverage they make out by prividing the DIP financing.

    Did you have some third grader following you around to correct your spelling?
